Today I burned Sydney, Vancouver, Venice, Hong Kong, New York, Glasgow, and London.
There is a wastage rate from our big giclee printer.
Sometimes the colours are wrong, sometimes the roll runs out before all the print is finished, sometimes the ink smudges etc.
So I get large bits of very good quality paper that I can use to paint over.
I use these big coloured scraps to try out ideas, experiment, or often just enjoy myself.
The paintings are sometimes good, sometimes not so good.
So today I took the plunge and destroyed about 200 near-miss paintings on paper that have cluttered up the studio for too long.
