The humming. Yellow, Red and Grey painting Jan 2014 Mixed media on canvas, 80 cm x 100 cm
There is a dead-pan quality to colour fields that come close to notes in music. Variations of intensity, tone and volume all has to be chosen when working the surface. The lure is as always to put too much into the composition. Here I wanted to get to a point of balance where the output from the canvas was a just enough to create activity, but still sparse enough to stay solid.
