|Neil Frazer's painting Shadow Breaker II Jackson's painting Shadow Breaker III|
This work was painted after being inspired by Neil Frazer's painting during our trip to see The Real Art Roadshow Silver Truck in July.
Why I wanted to paint this.
Because in the Roadshow I spotted the picture by Neil Frazer, it was real interesting and was my favourite.
I like the colours and effect of the paint. It inspired me, so when I got back to school I decided to have ago using his techniques.
I put the paint straight on the canvas and mixed and made textures using a palette knife and brush. I tore out shapes of paper to mask out areas that were white, then peeled them off after I had finished painting.
I really like that way of working and am going to paint a series using my own photos and drawings.
In particular I want to paint the Cathedral and other places in Christchurch.
