What is this?
This is a small original abstract painting that’s been created using a series of angled strokes and layers. Lines and linear shapes always fascinate me as much as the more wild and free ones so it’s inevitable that I explore the techniques from time to time.
I like to play around with colours too. Very often I will try out new palettes and combinations of colour, using this technique, to see how they differ from others. This is the first time I have used a predominantly orange and gold them and I must say I am delighted with the results.
Putting a plan together
When I conceive a painting like this I am always primarily concerned with layers and how best to arrange the sequences of colour and in which order. For most of the time I stick that plan and keep to my layering goals.
An example may be the black. I would need to decide where it is placed, what it intersects with, what will sit above it and what will sit underneath it. So, I must make decisions on what is uppermost and what disappears relative to the next application and so on.
It’s a pretty good idea to have this basic sequence worked out before you start so that you can at least build up a decent painting before you start going off on tangents.
Let me tell you – I go off on a lot of them!
