Since I came to Hoi An, I have been working on two main projects.The first is to complete the body of work required for the publication of my next boo which wil be about Saigon. The second is to develop my painting style.
So far, I have been working within my own bounds, expanding upon the style and medium that is familiar to me. First, I work in pencil, then in pen and ink and finally I add watercolour washes to bring teh draiwngs to life with shadows and painted textures.
This painting is the first in a series about reflections. I think we are all fascinated by reflections in water and I particulalry like those that are foudn as the tide is going out and the water-soaked sand is like a smooth mirror. These reflectinos can created dynamic shapes that I find particularly engaging.
