Sometimes I make my own little boards to paint on. I love playing with edges, and without even being conscious of it I always seem to end up with edges that are somewhat like torn watercolor paper. When hung, they cast nice shadows too. It’s little details like this that I always get caught up in.
Animus is the first piece on board that broke away from the rubbed oil washes of ‘Obsequium’ and the ‘Wild Things’ series, playing with more of a contemporary white background instead.
