I arrived back in Bangkok on 2nd Dec. in my studio was a large canvas 110×240 cm with a drawing on it ready to be painted. Little did I know at the time that this painting would take four months to finish. I certainly learnt a lot about the chameleon-like nature of turquoise and its complex relationship with ultramarine. Having cleared the studio of this painting, I am able to start on my sculpture project, I sincerely hope it doesn’t take as long to create!
This is the Turquoise painting. Below is the complete painting. The two images below that are details.
