Relax and let go

Distant Horizons is my first proper small scale abstract landscape painting and I couldn’t be more thrilled wit it. It began life as a slightly larger piece but I decided to chop it down so I could concentrate on the bit I was actually happy with.

The whole landscape thing is entirely deliberate and was my primary focus in creating it. The colour selection is based on memories of the sea as a kid when I used to go on holiday.

Paint blending

In order to create the feeling of depth and layers I have relied on some very careful blending of the paint colours. From a distance you see bands of horizontal lines but as you move in closer you can see that whilst this statement is true and forms the underpinning of its success, it is by no means exclusive.

Bands of green and blue have secondary accent colours placed within them. Some taper off before they complete a whole width and some begin and end in the middle of a colour band. To be fair there are all kinds of tiny little details to look at but they’re very subtle. The whole point of this painting was to make it a story of two halves; the one from a distance where you’re reminded of holidays as a kid and the other where you lose yourself in its complexity as you bury your head in to it.

Focal points and finishing touches

You may think that an abstract such as this shouldn’t have a focal point (or indeed need one) but again, just like the overall piece, the focal points are there but very subtle. In fact there are two and they are quite simply the top blue band and the bottom light green band. In fact, if I was to attach a real world reference point to this i would use the top of the light green band as the point where the sky meets the sea – but don’t hold me to that!

Between these all the other paint applications get placed and it’s because of the clever spacing that you never really feel the impact of these two coloured bands taking over. They are just enough to put structure in to the painting but never overpowering or awkward.

The painting 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.
