:: The Voice Project - Progress ::

About the Project    Progress    Plans    Sketches

Work began on the Voice Project in Summer 2013, with the marking out of the 13 panels ready for the acrylic underpainting of the Primary Daylight Image which took place in Winter and Spring 2014. These were the first steps in a long process that is planned to complete in the year 2020.. In Autumn 2014 and Spring 2015, the first UV Image was painted. Subsequent steps include creating ink & marker textured environments (which was completed in Spring/Summer 2016) and image overlays, followed by the final detailed marker imageries before the last step which is the completion of a much more detailed and intricate UV Image.

The first video is an update on the project from Spring 2018, in which the current status of both the daylight and UV images is shown, and the full title of the final artwork is revealed. The video has bilingual captions in Welsh and English. I should note that the Welsh captions I translated myself, so apologies to any native Welsh speakers for any major errors: Mae'n ddrwg gen i am fy Nghymraeg anfedrus - dim ond dysgwr dw i!

These videos show quick scans of historical progress, from the first marking out and painting of the Primary (daylight) Image, to the addition of UV Image elements and further elaborations of the Primary Image with Ink & Marker layers. The first three have no sound. The final film shows the thirteen canvas panels marked with the Primary Image and laid out next to my house to give a good idea of the true scale of the project. In each case, you can click on the 'full-screen' icon on the bottom right to view them full screen.
