So what is it then?
Speed of Light is a multi-coloured leap into happiness. It’s a bold quote for sure but then again just look at it – bright cheerful tones, big explosions of colour and some exquisite detailing.
It’s not meant to be anything figurative so you can either choose to let it become an emotional thing (meaning, how does it make you feel) or it can become something more tangible (meaning that you try to make it into something you recognize). Either way you’re a winner if you get some kind of reaction – that’s the hallmark of a good abstract painting – you get feedback almost instantly.
I can’t reveal exactly how I get some of the effects with my paints but i can tell you that in this abstract painting I had great fun dropping paint from 7 feet in the air on to the canvas (very messy) and also picking it up and moving it around (quite a lot!).
That may sound simplistic but I assure you that a drop or a twist in the wrong place and it all turns to a dark brown sludge. Not the best outcome at the end of a successful paint session. I have used two versions of my enamel paint – one of which is a very thin version to enable me to turn something quite vicious into a runny liquid.
See the reveal in this YouTube video of me seeing it for the first time after leaving it to cure.
