Information about the painting 'Eye See' :
"I created this painting in early March 2017 after purchasing a couple of new impasto painting knives. I really enjoy drawing and painting eyes so naturally this was a good place to start when testing the new knives. There is a variety of different brush and knife strokes in the painting which was built up gradually with drying in between layers. It is the first time I have painted an eye as a singular composition, and I enjoyed the process of working the image up to a finished oil painting"
