Light touches

This new abstract turquoise painting has been painted alongside three others but, like all four in this series, it has a real depth of personality and is perhaps the one that is most delicate and precise.

By starting with four blank canvases, one series of paints and one idea I can conceive my ideas into a number of variations. I like doing this from time to time as it pushes me to interpret things differently rather than churn out the same stuff all the time.

I must be challenged and I must have pressure. I have written about why it’s good to feel uncomfortable about your creativity.

Creating and finishing

It’s incredibly light and carefree. This painting has some very delicate paint finishes and is a celebration of restraint as well as expression. I think it sits on that line between the two brilliantly.

In particular the turquoise applications are an absolute triumph; never too bold but just present enough to put the structure into the painting that everything else is based around. Marvellous!

The art work is finished with a 2mm mount that’s set inside a laser-cut aluminium frame. This gets covered with a Plexiglass (acrylic) front (a high quality PVC alternative to glass). This can be removed if you wish.

This painting is shipped ready to hang. Worldwide shipping is available – costs are calculated at the checkout before you decide to buy. Any problems, drop me a mail.
