TECHNIQUE OF PAINTING ON SILK. Instead of painting on paper or canvas, I sometimes paint on pure silk, using special paints. The process is quite long and experimental, with about 50% of the paintings not coming out as I would like, so they are either 'cut-up' to make original greeting cards or sold-off at a lower price. The principle is similar to watercolours. Colour mixing, allowing the colours to run and mingle together except the paint will keep 'running' until they dry-out on the silk. To control this, I use a 'gutta' as a block or work above a very hot radiator !!!

(Below): Daw Mill, North Warwickshire. Was thought to be one of the best coal mines in Europe. They had an underground fire in 2013 and the mine was closed although talk from the miners was that they were planning to close the mine anyway and they could have put the fire out! The land should be reverted back to green belt (as per the planning consent) but plans have been put forward to convert it to a large industrial site.  I was permitted to take photographs both before the mine was closed and also after the fire and have done several paintings. (Both sold) but limited edition signed prints are available of the painting below.
