New Beginnings

I've just cleared away  the material which inspired my painting 'Hinaki',  now that it is finished .
' Who Stole The Toothpaste?' is my new picture and I'm currently experimenting on eight little canvases to try and get the effects I want. 
I've put up all the archive material in the studio, which was collected over the last two years, including a model of Mr Toad. Illustrations and paintings by other artists, as well as my own research drawings also help to give me ideas and help solve problems.
Lettering plays an important part in this picture as it appears as an underlying texture in the background. I've been working from an enlarged paper copy of an early 20th century ceramic toothpaste lid, to try and get the style and words I need.
Lots still to do but I think I'm getting closer to starting the final piece.
