This large pink abstract painting was born from a very personal moment that I have talked about on a separate blog post about why creative people need uncertainty to make the good things happen. It was inspired by the music of Hannah Scott and was a big wake-up call that came out of the blue.
It’s well worth a read and will make a lot of sense, especially if you have any kind of creative streak within you. So for now I just want to concentrate on the painting itself and not dwell on the reason for doing it.
When I look at creating these kinds of abstract paintings, especially ones with pink in them, I have to mentally visualise the end result before I can begin painting.
Crucial to the core colour of pink are the accent colours that surround it. There’s a million different ways of interpreting a common theme and there will be infinite ways to translate that. On this occasion I decided on a mixture of white and gold to go with the two shades of pink.
I’m glad I did as the colour combination is beautiful when put together. A little black, some carefully selected purples and a dash of lime green completes the colour palette.
Layers and layers
The painting is made up of layers of paint. Within that principle there is still a clearly defined split between the foreground and background. Whilst the latter is made up from pink and purple and dashes of white the foreground is a few well chosen arcs and twist of black, green and white. There’s a little copper and gold woven in there too.
Now despite these being done in different sessions I have the ability to keep my paints liquid indefinitely so that I can blend layers together without you knowing which was put down first. It’s a nice technique for helping to keep the painting fluid and continuous instead of separated and distant.
The finished painting
I love the colour for a start. But dig a little deeper and you find some very subtle detailing and nuances. Some of my paints are applied with a hypodermic needle so I can get some exquisite effects by applying very small amounts of paint at a time. This also enables me to be accurate with where I place them – crucial in achieving the overall effect.
