'Aerial VII, Burnt Earth'
21 x 30 cms. oil on clear Perspex
About this painting:
'Left over from an earlier sculptural project I found a piece of clear Perspex in the studio and decided to use it as ground for an oil painting.
It was challenging in that the paint slid over the smooth surface rather than being 'grabbed' as it would on textured canvas but that was soon mastered. However, the bonus was that the 'scraping through' which is a technique I use to create lines through the thickness of paint, went down to the surface of the Perspex creating clear lines. With white paper behind the Perspex sheet, the lines showed white and also the whole painting took on a further luminescence.
This is excitingly experimental as yet and I wonder what might happen if I placed digital lighting behind the Perspex rather than white or even coloured paper.
Must try that.'
