Working on canvas, Patrick uses conventional paints along with a paste of his own. One which he creates by mixing timber glue, wood varnish, tile grout or cement.

Given their thickness, each textured layer can take a whole day to dry. The next stage after this will be to apply dark, background shadows and finally colours.

In the age of software and apps, Patrick reminds us what’s possible with inspiration, talent and just your bare hands.
