Each painting starts with a continuous line work drawing that is transferred to wood, usually birch or sometimes plywood. Then there is a watercolor wash applied over some areas to let the woodgrain show through. The nest step incorporates a variety of different papers applied to the surface such as maps, origami papers and magazines and comic books. After that, the drawing is outlined in liquid acrylics, then the rest of the color work is finished with oils. The whole work is completed with a coating of high gloss polymer varnish.
