I do love painting. The Finishing of masks is just about my favourite part of the mask making process. Therefore, now I am setting myself this challenge, to paint for the sake of painting. I shall use this 3D triptych as the blank ground for painting. I just don’t know what it will be, certainly not decorative and not my familiar mask technique of exaggerating the underlying form. So lets see. I have always been particularly impressed by the way in which ceramic artists are able to paint/draw directly onto a 3D surface. And of course, cave painters did the same, on bare rock AND in the dark.
