This piece is available for purchase from my website
Its feast or famine with me for concepts for new paintings. Right now its feast and there's not enough time to get it all down on canvas. However, this week I've been in abstract/colour mode. I can't explain why. Perhaps its the January weather of grey cold days that makes be want intense colour glowing.
This piece was inspired by some fragments of paper that had fallen onto the studio floor. I used modelling paste on the upper section of the canvas panel and scrubbed in pigment. I added oil paint, luscious thick dabs of paint to represent the fallen paper using a palette knife. I love how the paint builds and how, when dragged over the paste, hits the high points only.
