  • This is a style of painting that I do quite frequently. I call it my 'pixie' style as it is based on the pixelated images one gets when the TV picture goes wrong!
    I do it with a small palette knife with short left to right and then downwards strokes, producing small squares horizontally and then vertically.
    I try to forget the image of the painting subject: instead concentrating on the lights, darks and mid tones and the shapes of those tones. The image emerges as a result.
    When it is completely dry I then go back into the picture with some small squares of different bold colours and pick out and emphasise any highlights.
    When that is dry I then put a turps wash over some areas allowing it to drip down. I usually do this in a magenta and/or ultramarine wash. This last process 'breaks the painting rules" and so will crackle over time adding to the texture.
