Check out these new works on plywood board, a fantastic substrate to work on. I found a supplier of them and I am slowly whittling down their supply. It is raw 3-ply on a braced frame, somewhat like the stretchers of a canvas. This return to a more traditional substrate hails a return to artist quality acrylics, which means, I can mix colours once more. When working on walls with house paint, I had to make colour decisions at the hardware store – because of the high content of filler and low pigment in house paint, they don’t mix well and end up muddy horrible colours. Artist acrylics have a high amount of pigment in them, which means they mix like a dream. Now I make colour decisions sitting in front of my easel.
The works feature abstract architectural space and painterly, flat fields of colour in contrast.
