Gouache on 80 gsm paper
I wanted to explore some of the visual elements that are evolving from the ink paintings on a different paper with a different medium. The surprise with this paper was that the paint tended to sit on top, rather than being absorbed into the paper (as is the case with the rice paper), and this characteristic lead to utilising some of the emerging effects.
My starting point (imagery) was again the journey to the Great Wall of China but then the paint always takes over.
