I started by painting the canvas with gesso (as it started life as a picture of a camper van!). I used gel medium to apply oriental paper to the background and once this was dry, I used acrylic paint in layers to build up the colours to match my main photograph.
I printed the monochrome geisha image onto a transparency and painted the other image with Croco basecoat to seal it. The temple was made using a stamped image onto Ten Second Studio metal. I used other oriental stamps and completed the canvas with some K&Co lanterns.
