“Shoot the Moon” – The Movie

I have made a short film of how this edition is made. It shows me painting a blue version of the image from start to finish and gives a good insight into the amount of work that goes into each and every copy.

Please visit my Vimeo site here; “Shoot the Moon”

There are lots of other process videos there of past pieces, recent and ancient, so please get yourself a cup of tea and spend a while looking at what I do.

Gracias.

“Released” Wooden Veneer Sheet Edition.

After I recently made the wooden panels with this image on I received a lot of requests inquiring about further wooden editions. After searching for a suitable product I finally managed to find sheets of real wood veneer that I was able to cut to size and experiment with. I wanted to make a piece that allowed me the same flexibility that a sheet of paper would give but it was important to keep the natural beauty and texture of the real wood that could be further enhanced and brought out with several coats of thick gloss varnish. The results are here…….

More Hand Made Wooden Panels.

I have been working on some new hand made wooden panels and decided to revisit a few favorite images and commit them to wood. All the panels are made from solid 3/4 inch timber and are treated with 3 coats of pine gloss varnish. The grain and texture of the wood is really enhanced and pops right out under the protection of the varnish. The image is then painted on top. I decided to limit my palette and chose to only work with three colours (Black,White,Beige) in order to not detract from the natural beauty of the wood. I’m really happy with the results…..
