After I finished that yesterday, I started on a second painting. I've taken photos of the work in progress. This first shows the mountboard ground with torn paper and hole punched collage covered with gesso and the first brushstrokes.
A little more detail added.
Some final details added with coloured pencils and a craft knife to (carefully) scratch out some highlights.
