Touch Me 6
Touch Me Collection - Painting 6 - Royal Blue
91x31cm Oil on Canvas
"I've fallen in love with expressive brushstrokes....brushstrokes with life in them. To the typically thought-out application of paint I've used, I'm adding spontaneity, variety and texture."
An unusually shaped canvas adds space for a dynamic force across the visual field - a sense of dance among the lines. Painting 6 emphasises contrast through clean primary colours. An unusual horizontal format adds to the dynamism of movement across the painting...the composition is grounded, heavier and thicker brushstrokes and darker colours toward the lower half. The palette of blues, greens and yellows is enlivening.
