What is this?
Nine Mile Burn is a contemporary orange abstract painting featuring a selection of warm orange colours and carefully blended variations. It also features grey, silver, black, red and yellow coloured enamel paints.
The vast majority of the paint was applied then manoeuvred using a selection of small rigid plastic scrapers; similar to those you might use for tile grouting. Using a hard edge allows me to be very precise with the amount of pressure I apply to any given paint application but also explicit control over its shape and form.
I tend to work in small areas at a time so I can concentrate on achieving the desired level of detailing as I move along. Typically these kind of full-coverage paintings will take around five sessions to complete (measuring a session as the point at which my knees give way or I can’t move on without letting some of the paint cure first).
