Derek Collins, Greengallery

My art is an extension of the paint effects I have worked with for many years. I mix pigments and lacquer together, add some thinners then set it on fire (Flaming Art). Then when it has dried I give it a splash coat of resin, this gives it a glossy texture and is very tactile, making you want to touch the painting. I have been using resin in my paintings for eighteen years and the resins are very eco friendly. I decided to go full time when I was fifty years old and now at sixty seven, my paintings are bought from clients all over the world.
