Using different paints
This is a large modern art painting created with a slightly more unusual version of my enamel paints.
I have a non-toxic variant that i normally use for public demonstrations and that’s the type of paint I have used on Ten Degrees North. In fact I used them deliberately because I had the BBC down at my studio doing some filming for a project I cannot reveal and they needed to be in my paint pod without breathing masks – so I opted to use this version of my paints just for them.
Lights, camera, action!
I only really used the canvas to demonstrate some techniques for the sake of the cameras but it soon transpired that this was going to turn in to something rather wonderful.
After the crew did their filming and left I returned back to the paint pod and continued to explore the directions I had taken thus far. I completed the painting in just one session (highly unusual) and I can remember looking at my watch and realizing it was 3am – a full six hours after the BBC had left.
It’s funny how time can evaporate when you’re so far in to something like this. I don’t have any memory of painting it either. That must be a sign of how immersed I became in my craft.
