The paintings start with a drawing that has continuous line work, it is transferred to wood. Then there is a watercolor wash applied over some areas to let the woodgrain show through. The next step incorporates a variety of different papers applied to the surface such as maps, origami papers and magazines. After that, the drawing is outlined in liquid acrylics, then the rest of the color work is finished with oils. The whole work is completed with a coating of high gloss polymer varnish.
