All things blue
I’ve mixed in different additives to change the characteristics of the paints as they were put on the canvas. This means that they look textural and are far from a flat linear surface.
I kept some blue highlights all the way through the painting and fused this with a little purple inside the two main oval structures. From a technique point of view the paint has been applied using an extending pole and a series of foam and wool mop rollers.
Making an impact
The most noticeable thing about this painting is perhaps its large size. It’s a wall filler for sure and you will need to have a pretty big space to put it in. But don’t be put off by that because you’d be surprised by how well it behaves.
It’s imposing and bold but it’s not a painting that punches your face each time you walk past it. The careful use of three shades of blue paint have given it some wonderful dimensions and a deliciously reflective quality that bounces light around in some spectacular ways.
The shapes that form the main part of the painting can remind you of whatever you want really and even though they were loosely based on my desire to create a pair of angels wings you shouldn’t necessarily take that as being gospel (no pun intended there!).
