Passion and self control. Red times four, October 2013. Acrylics on board, 59.5 cm x 65.5 cm

This survey of red hues started out as a rather flamboyant patchwork of many colour fields. The sheer multitude of the mix didn't work, and something had to be done. Like a chairman of a rambunctious meeting I asked for silence and politely requested the colours to take turns in saying what was on their mind. Red stepped forward first. As it is a highly volatile colour it was important that a calm and balanced delivery could be presented.
