Self Portrait Squinting in the Light
Paul Hutchinson
oil on aluminium panel
98 x 80mm
In the collection of Puke Ariki

I enjoy trying out new and different materials. Recently I got some aluminium sheet which consists of a plastic core sandwiched inbetween two very thin sheets of aluminium. It is very flat and smooth and I primed it with a transparent acrylic medium before painting directly with oil paint, leaving the silvery aluminium showing in the background. It looks grey in the photograph.
