Black and white
This explosive, and highly engaging, black and white abstract painting was created with just these two colours. That’s it! Nothing more than that. Amazingly, all those other gradients and tonal variations are borne from just black and white.
I love it of course but there is much more to this painting than at first meets the eye. So let me explore the colour depth and tell you why this is a little different to most that I create.
Now, on closer inspection you can not only see just grey tones but also cream coloured ones. I use a clever separation technique to tease out some of the more subdued undertones from the pigments contained within the paint.
A little Swarez magic…
In this instance it is white. The white pigment in my paints is quite a complex thing and, unlike traditional medium like acrylic and oil paints, they don’t contain any titanium dioxide.
Being a combination of several mineral substances, the white pigment has components, and these get ‘layered’ when you begin to chemically separate them. It is this process that allows me to pick out very subtle nuances from the paint; things you would never see in normal circumstances.
I don’t attempt this very often because it can get very messy and more often than not goes very wrong. But I am pleased to say that in Glacial March, things turned out pretty good!
