This is the original painting of A ‘Pair of Puffins’ on a textured canvas I created and then using colourful inks  I depicted these beautiful little characters.I have always been quite besotted with Puffins since i was little and saw them at The Farne Islands ,near where I grew up. The canvas is 30cmx30cmx4cms.

The Ink Series is a new style of work I am doing as a little bit of a breakaway from my more traditional style. It is a more creative style, using inks and other mixed media materials to create simple but colourful images. I find it very freeing as I tend to be a little pedantic in my perfectionism of image painting and using this technique you do not have control and you have to allow the materials to interact and then work with what accidentally occurs … its quite fascinating, fun and frustrating all at the same time … I just love it! … and no expectations, what happens … happens
