Since 1993 Ian Friend has concentrated on using aqueous media on paper - including gouache, ink, casein and raw pigment, and crayon. He has sought to elevate work on paper as a primary medium rather than as an adjunct to, or preliminary study towards, another medium such as oil on canvas.

This has been reflected in the inclusion in exhibitions of national and international standing of work on paper and acquisition by public galleries and private collectors.
