This magnificent red and purple painting features hints of turquoise, gold, silver and white. It’s quite an unusual combination of colours for me to use and the way I have arranged them is also something different for me.
There’s still that rising and moving element of dark to light but the organisation and placement of the colour blocks is not a line I normally follow.
The painting features lots of exciting and different techniques including drops and splats as well as celling, fluid pours and intricate blending.
I often talk about details and my love of making every inch of the canvas work. No matter the size of the painting I always look at making each bit work wherever you view it from. In this particular piece I have managed to combine a very striking series of colours and shapes that instantly grab the eye whilst packing in an almost infinite level of detail.
Even the large area of silver, which at first appears solid and unwavering, features tiny fronds and cells. And did I mention the role that the metallic paints play? Well, they may only be silver and gold but they bring an added dimension to the way light reflects across the surface. You have to see it to believe it.
Ways to enjoy
Another added bonus is the option to hang it in any one of four orientations so being able to rotate to fit a particular space is not going to be a problem. Whether it’s a bedroom or above a sofa this painting is extremely versatile.
I’ve also photographed it hanging in a bright hallway so there’s another location that could benefit from a spectacular infusion of colour.
It’s a bold original artwork that has incredible details and strong vibrant colours. The use of gold and silver add another element to this already feature packed painting.
