Creating the dream

California Dreaming is a large, rectangular abstract painting created with orange, red and lime green paints. Added to this are a palette of complimentary colors that include purple violet, water blue and white.

This is quite a big range of colors and the finished piece is breathtaking – with all of its delicate nuances, tonal ranges and endless movements. The painting was created with a piece of flat canvas, on to which I poured colours into specific areas, one at a time. I then moved them around with e grout spreader and you can see exactly how i did that in the video below.

The finished painting

Whatever your color preferences may be, you can’t ignore the fact that this is pretty spectacular. The sheer depth of detail is really quite extraordinary. I am exploring new ways of moving and forming paint and the results of that are evident right here.

As a lover of orange (my favourite colour) and lime green I relish the opportunity to use them wherever I can. So it’s no surprise they are the dominant colors in the painting. But that only tells half the story. Their ability to take centre stage is down to the the relative ratios of the other paints. And this is my whole ethos about balance.

You have to carefully navigate your way through the maze as you paint to understand what makes you feel okay about something. Balancing that is key and isn’t any easy thing to put into a sentence – I kind of just know if it’s right or wrong.

What you end up with, when all of that slots into place, is a powerful, uplifting painting with all the right boxes ticked. Bright, cheerful, celebrationary and vibrant. What more do you need as walk past a painting every day?
