Platform residency - Week 3

"This week has been all about colour. Mixing up large quantities of acrylic paint and blocking in the larger areas and trying to define the background and foreground.

I think I’ve managed to achieve Ultimate Warrior’s skin tones but will leave his colourful trade mark make-up for next week, that’s when I’ll start to focus on the finer details.

I’ve found a really great paint brush to work with. It’s big and holds tons of paint but it’s also really accurate for getting strong precise lines and edges too.

Its particularly sunny today and the colours are unbelievably vibrant in the sunshine.

Next week will be a real challenge as I try to pull all the elements together. Can’t wait!"
