Abstract: My thesis show consists of 12 paintings and 3 drawings. The paintings are watercolor on paper. The paper is Arches heavy-weight white with a hot press finish. The method of painting is air brush and frisket paper. The drawings are done with India Ink on Arches medium-weight etching paper and are studies for the paintings. Before choosing this medium, I explored three alternate media. The first was acrylic paint on canvas. The second involved paper cut-outs sandwiched between layers of glass to form a bas-relief. The third was white on white bas-relief prints. The plates used to emboss the paper were made from chipboard and coated with crylon to protect them with water. A standard etching process was used to print the plates on Arches medium-weight white etching paper. After starting with painting and working through two types of bas-relief, the return to painting was the final solution.
