What is this?
After The Rain is a large piece of multi coloured art that has been created with enamel paint and made up of a load of gentle arcs and sweeps that interlock and overlap with each other.
It’s not meant to be anything which is why its abstract in its composition. It is purely a celebration of colours and shapes and the majesty of my paints.
Colour, colour, colour
With After The Rain that’s exactly what I have done – gone completely mad and used a whole rainbow of colour in one place.
I have done that on occasions and, most notably, this does have a resemblance to High Hopes from 2015. It has the same technique of using window squeegees of various widths to create the free flowing arcs and loops.

At this point you may like to know that I recorded the whole process of this painting’s creation from start to finish in a live internet broadcast on October 30th 2019.
This was breaking new ground for me as I had never televised any parts of my process before so I decided to start with a bang and go for it with a technique that’s expressive, colours that are gorgeous and a canvas big enough to fill the wide angle on the overhead camera!
