Hills & Valleys and what I’ve been up to in 2019

Earlier in the year I started working on a new series; Hills & Valleys, inspired by the surrounding landscape of the Black Mountains & Brecon Beacons National Park. I’ve painted a number of artworks on wooden and aluminium substrates, some long landscape and some round all using numerous layes of pouring medium and inks where I use the inks in the pour and also paint between each layer. I then finish with a layer of art resin. Due to its many layers, it has a rich translucency and the resin adds to this but also makes the art more resiliant; water, heat and scratch resistant, introducing the idea that you can not only have your art hanging on the wall framed but use possibly as splashbacks in your kitchen, hang in the bathroom or use as an occasional table.
