I have recently made a 3d artwork out of an old wooden box I acquired from Wolverhampton Market. I want to make further boxes and have got two cigar boxes from Harrods which I will be starting soon.
I have been commissioned to produce a work of art for St. Gregory’s Church, Wednesfield, Wolverhampton. I wanted to base the work on stained glass and the illumination it produces. I still wanted to use decoupage which I have incorporated with the text of Sense and Sensibility and butterflies. I will take it to the customers later on in the week.
This new artwork is an experiment with colour, the brush strokes are not important as I want to implement a technique which I can use in further artworks based on stained glass windows. I have been using the windows of Coventry Cathedral designed by John Piper which is absolutely spectacular, for research. I want the oil paint to be luminescent and hopefully the layers will convey some of the ideas I am trying to achieve.
