I’ve been working on a new piece called ‘Smoke Stack Lightning’ and thought to take a few pictures part way through. The pictures show part of my process, working from drawings and developing them as I go. I start by making a stencil and work into it with acrylics, mapping out the form with charcoal. I wanted to use subtle tones of colour, almost black and white, as part of the preparation to paint, I made a mood board on Pinterest.
International Alert are one of the world’s leading peacebuilding organisations, with nearly 30 years of experience laying the foundations for peace. Working with local people in over 25 countries around the world to help them build peace. They advise governments, organisations and companies on how to support peace. As part of the Talking Peace festival I took part in some live painting. The finished canvas is available to buy with all proceeds going to the International Alert Charity.
