Original canvas by Lily Greenwood.
Lily's trademark technique, developed over a number of years, is to use
reproductions of her own paintings as collage material on the canvas. Lily continuously adds to her own library of 'source' paintings, which are then reproduced and cut out ready to create a finished piece. The canvas backgrounds are painted with acrylics. When the collage composition has been secured in place, Lily uses washes of inks, then may apply additional painted or drawn details. Finally a clear gloss varnish is applied, securing the collage, adding an opulent lustre, and bringing out the depth of colour.
