This painting is a really old one from when I was using a Japanese lacquering technique. Rather than use a single coat of resin I was building up 30 – 40 layers of varnish and placing drops of paint in between. It looks like the drops are floating, suspended in the varnish. This one uses a matt varnish, so it has an atmospheric, misty feel.
Older paintings are available at my studio at their last exhibition price. I don’t believe in dropping the price of my work, instead I offer these older works at this older retro price. If I were to exhibit them again it would be at current prices.
The value of my work has increased since this guy had his last outing, while he’s still hiding out at my studio it’s quite the saving.
