I work primarily with acrylics and inks. However, I also love soft pastels and oil bars/oil pastels on various substrate.
I am based in a small village on the outskirts of Norwich, Norfolk, United Kingdom. Acrylics have for decades been my medium of choice. I am fascinated with texture both in the subjects I wish to convey and in the process of painting. Using various structure pastes, gels, inks and even construction grout in paintings is a thoroughly invigorating process.
I was asked to review Art Spectrum soft pastels for Jacksons art supplies and the review is here.
Applying the knowledge I have gained from using soft pastels into other mediums like acrylics and more recently, oil bars and oil pastels, has made a great difference in the way I tackle my work.
