About the Technique

The position of working is standing up and painting on a flat  horizontal surface.  The brush used is called a spotter brush and the paint used is acrylic, undiluted. The paintbrush is held vertically for every dot. I also use other tools, cotton buds, cocktails sticks to make the dots.

Every dot is delicately placed without the brush touching the surface, only the paint. As the paint touches the surface, the brush is slowly moved away, dragging the dot to give it a peak. This is repeated throughout.

The dots are various sizes with the largest  ever being approximately 6mm. The size of the dot and the texture of each different colour of paint used determines the definition of the peaks.

The paintings can take from a few hours to a years to complete. It is a very simple technique and very easy to learn.
