"One of the most beautiful qualities of true friendship is to understand and to be understood."
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
My friends have been painted directly onto a restored French map of Africa dated 1865. I have the original in my collection, it is badly damaged and very fragile so I scanned and digitally repaired it and have used this as the painting ground. The map has been printed on archival 300gm cotton paper, mounted on board and sealed and protected with acrylic medium and gesso. I then created my artwork using acrylic inks and paints being careful to allow the map to shine through as it is an integral part of the painting.
