My paintings go through many stages before the final piece is complete. 

To create a big painting such as the one featured in this post, I start by mapping out the piece using black ink. Sometimes I use string to define the outline. I then add sand and material which is useful for building texture. 

After that I use oil paints to add colour to the canvas. When I feel satisfied with the base colour I add black ink to define the shape and begin adding different colour inks and oil pastels. After this I use different materials such as beads, mirrors and other bits of glass to create a raised texture. 

And there we have it – Tuscany 6 is complete!
