Creating big square paintings
I love squares – especially when creating original modern art paintings. I like that you can turn them in four orientations and the balance you can get when everything works out.
With Last Horizon we have a stunning multi coloured rainbow of a painting that’s packed full of energy and life. It works from thirty feet away as brilliantly as it does from 3 inches away. It really is one of those multi-dimensional paintings that works wherever you look at it from.
Drag and remove
The technique used for this painting is primarily a drag and remove one. I have talked about this in years gone past but essentially it’s a way of applying paint in one place then dragging it to another.
Sounds simple right? I wish it were. The variables that need to be considered before each drag is made are critical and are often numerous in there abundance.
How much paint to apply, where does it need to go, how much pressure to apply, how far does it drag, what shape and direction will it move in, what will it be passing over, what will that do to what’s already there… I literally could write a book on this technique. It was popularised by Gerhard Richter during the 1960’s if you want to see it from a historical perspective.
