The Chess Match, Havana
Walking the backstreets I came across this gem which made a great subject to paint. A signed and numbered limited edition of 100 Giclée prints on a 310gsm mould-made paper using archival inks. This is an original digital artwork.
I paint digitally. Working with only flat areas of colour and no tone, I “cut out” colour shapes with a digital stylus on my computer, arranging them on different layers, creating a collage. In fact, I first began working this way years ago by cutting out sheets of coloured paper with scissors, similar to the way Matisse created his paper cut-outs. The paintings end up as digital files, therefore there is no scanning, they are printed directly from the computer onto a mould-made paper.
