In the Mangrove Painting Studio. This video shows the technique that I used to paint these large canvases. The initial studies that I made in the mangroves were used as references and the canvases evolved from a long time spent in the Mangroves studying the older warrior like structures and young seedlings. I stretched 17 six foot canvases and worked first with a masking fluid. These areas are masked so that as I lay the layers of ink the masked areas remain unstained. when the final layers are dry the latex like masking fluid is rubbed off the surface.
