I always work from my own photographs and my process takes me on an experimental journey and begins with selecting either a whole photo or a section of a photo and experimenting by printing them on paper.
Later I enlarge parts of the image and print them again on acetate and will experiment with colour or by reverse photocopying them, printing them again and layering the acetate, which can result in a ghostly or vintage effect, then using the samples to make a smaller abstract painting from the original.
I have found that by going through this process, the acetate is an important part of the painting and they become smaller works of the original in their own. Later I will begin to work on a larger image and I use acrylic paints for practical reasons as they dry quickly and are less odorous.
