Can of Paint...
graphite, putty eraser, wax crayon & watercolour/30x20cm
Being the latest in the ‘roadkill’ diptych series, this example the most ‘painterly’ yet in terms of overall surface, with even the bare aluminium areas of the represented found object/subject matter being rendered in watercolour, when habitually such features have previously been left as ‘exposed’ graphite however much of the remainder of the surface has been treated & built up with overlays of discrete brushstrokes of translucent paint, in line with recent developments & as also occurs in this particular instance, in the ongoing interests of the explicit display of the process of the facture of the drawing-painting, the (manual) work of art.

Digression: a thought occurred whilst listening to the commentary on the Algeria v England World Cup football match this evening. Whilst it is said that 'no man is an island' - what about blokes named Barry?
