Combining black and gold
These two colours are a particular favourite of mine and fit really well with each other. I use it as often as I can and here are some other examples of how broad a spectrum of styles I cover with the two colours:
So with A Thousand Words I decided to do something I had not done with black and gold before and paint, using a drag and remove technique, in sharp angles to the sides of the canvas. Think of it as a giant abstract criss-cross style if you like.
Adding the other colours
Of course it’s not just the black and gold paints that perform here – there is also a subtle inclusion of a light grey and the all important addition of white. In so many of my paintings the inclusion of black and white normally makes or breaks things. And seldom has it been so critical than in this painting.
In fact it’s the reason why the big central cross shape exists as it’s there to break the whole painting up into smaller manageable pieces. If anyone colour took over you would definitely lose all the intricacies and nuances that are allowed by the use of the big central cross shape.
