    about this gallery...

    Work in this gallery has been done on a variety of paper surfaces. Some are tissue, others newsprint and a few are on mountboard.

    The paper / tissue / table-napkin / newspaper / Xuan etc. can be patterned or plain, dark or light. The first application of hot wax will preserve some of this first, usually light, pattern or colour. Subsequent dying and waxing, in as many applications as necessary, produces the final picture.
