These are original oil paintings, some have been sold, however prints and t-shirts are still available.
My 'tattoo series' are made up of several steps, the first by laying the support on a flat table and pouring watered down acrylic paint, letting it do its own thing, dancing and flowing around the surface, the outcome is unknown but exciting. I try not to control this stage too much however I do want to have areas of dark hues for shadows and light hues for highlights
on the figures.
When dry, I chose an image from the array I have either taken or collected. The painting process is intuitive as I reveal or conceal the figure, allowing 'delicious' parts of the 'ground' (art term for background) to be seen through the flesh of the figure and some to be concealed. These recent paintings have been embellished with tattoos, decorative imagery, flowers, and birds, some of which have taken flight from the confines of the body.
