Unlike a lot of my paintings this particular one sees me arranging colours into more defined blocks and areas.
As the inspiration here is the passing of the seasons I wanted to bring a degree of separation into the coloured areas so that they became themed in their own right rather than be blended into one another.
The passing of the seasons rarely comes with a single defining change so the delicate blending of each area of colour is essential in carrying the narrative that lies behind it. Each careful movement is a small step from one thing to another. Transitions are respected and brought at a pace that cannot be rushed.
Cells and things
One of the highlights (and successes) of this painting is the creation of the cell structures – particularly through the middle of the canvas.
Creating cells with enamel paint is quite a difficult thing to do but with the right chemicals and a lot of patience it can be done. The rising central ‘spine’ is where the majority of this celling occurs. It’s my way of interpreting early spring blooms and the cycle of growth and emergence.
