Attached is a photo of recently completed painting. I used a process called tonking to produce this painting. Basically I did a rough painting of the two objects in the still life set-up. I then wiped off virtually all the paint using newspaper. Then I worked from the remaining very pale image to produce this painting.

I'll be interested in reading your comments.

that's pretty interesting, had never heard of tonking before. HERE is a video of the process I found on Google. Will have to give it a try  :)
