As an artist I produce one of a kind originals as commissions, but I also create what I term a “multi version”. This is where I will produce more than one version of a design or concept. I use the same basic line artwork to create the resist lines on the silk and will sometimes add or remove to the design structure. Each piece is hand painted and no two are alike. The two paintings below are a good example of the multi-version technique. Notice that in the first painting at the top the colours and lighting of the carapace and sea are significantly different to the bottom image, as well the second painting has an added feature of blue tang fish. Working in this method gives me the freedom to experiment all the time, something you would not do on a one of a kind piece.
