Using old master painting techniques, "The Mechanical Paradise" is a series of oil paintings that symbolically combine ancient myths with the introduction of AI into contemporary life.  
These  works use "Old master" painting methods that require an underpainting,  I use a mix of raw umber, transparent oxide red and titanium white for the under painting and then various transparent and semi transparent oil colours, mixed with a medium to create the coloured glazes.
