The colour combination
Terra Nova is one of those paintings that really grabs your attention. Its mix of bold, bright colours and the arrangement of them into magnificent forms is something to behold when you’re actually stood in front of it.
The combination of orange, gold and yellow sets the tone for this original painting, but it’s the inclusion of aqua green, dark blue, red and the use of white that really brings the depth of it out.
You could almost reach out and put your hand inside it – that’s the effect of the paint layering and the use of textures, where the paint is applied in higher volumes.
The power of gold
I could list so many stand-out features here but for now I will concentrate on just a few. The most thrilling one, for me, is the metallic gold. It’s a colour I have eulogized about so many times before but one that never gets old. Its refractive capabilities go beyond the use of words and pictures and really does become ‘other worldly’ when you move around it.
The combination of changing light conditions and the ability to move your viewing angles results in something extraordinary. And there’s a lot of it in this painting!
