...I just wanted to spray and paint and play. I had no theme in mind, no plan. I just started adding colour, painting, stamping and stencilling.
Then I added stronger colours in drips and more stencilling, and around the edge.
Then I really didn't know where to go, so I flicked through my stencils for inspiration, and found this one. I used black ink to stencil her first, then moved the stencil over and repeated her using grunge paste. Once this dried I was able to paint her.
on the left I doodled an outline and some wavy lines , along with a few circles. I used gesso to knock back the areas that i wanted to write on and left the original painty background showing through the circles.
the poem I copied out is 'I Love You in Secret by pablo Neruda'
I then added some white dots with a posca pen on the dress and around the circles.
I thought it was finished, but then decided to add this title just to one side.
