Mystique....


I've always loved Venetian masks and they are such a joy to paint, you are really able to let your imagination go with colour and texture while painting these. I have built up a collection over the last few years and was inspired to add to this after seeing the wonderful photos of  Thomas Warm who very kindly gave me his permission to use them as references.Also being inspired by Hazel Soan's new DVD on textures, I decided to incorporate some wax to help create the lace.

Solo Exhibition at the Kington Gallery in Herefordshire.
