I love the interaction between a visual be it a painting, photograph or even a tattoo I see on the street and how it plays in my head.
Sometimes it can get very Tim Burtonesque in there!
Taking inspiration from Picasso’s Weeping Woman and Woman in a hat I loved the play with lines and colour mix.
Vivienne Westwood AW13 show was filled with this imagery which was wonderful.
I like to work with a mix of powders from Shu Uemura , aqua colours by Kryolan/Mac/Fardel and wet thick tarpaints and creams from Illamqsqua and Pout which brings out a 3D quality.
For skinwork I prefer aqua colour applied rapidly to create that milky complexion.
