11 Brick Wall – Original Painting
About the Image:
Brick walls, simple structures with so much character. Especially ealy brickwork which has been allowed to age for years, in this case decades, maybe even centuries. There’s something comforting and solid about brickwork. Associations with fires or houses from our past perhaps. There’s nothing special about a brick wall, except where it is. And where it is can be very important.
Creation: The image is created using masking fluid, then painted with a watercolour wash and covered with clingfilm. Once this is removed the picture is further developed using acrylic inks and building up layers, which are left to dry before the masking is removed to reveal the final picture.
