The latest in my print embellishment experiments, this ink painting was from a suite I painted to illustrate my talk Peer workers; a consumer perspective”. I was invited to give this talk by the Mental Illness Fellowship of Australia, the national body for what is now called Skylight in SA. It was my first interstate talk, delivered at a conference of peer workers. This a illustrated my personal experience that not having any services was less harmful than being caught in bad services.
I’ve embellished it with watercolour paint made from extremely finely ground garnets. They are a softer pinky brown tone and work very well for the boat on fire and a red moon.
