Cat Plastic

My technique for creating paintings came about when I noticed how much waste plastics I was throwing out. Some of it was really nicely coloured and would lend itself to pigmenting some sort of mixed medium artworks. I experimented and finally settled on a process that I can now use with great ease. By building up layers I think it adds a kind of texturing that is reminiscent of impasto painting. Of course I am painting cats. One of my favorite artists is Pierre Bonard who loved to capture intimate moments in vibrant but soft colours. An effect I am still trying to master myself.
