Messing About with Paint

Colour Madness

Oil on canvas 122cmx41cm

Streaks of colour, an abstract expression (Action Painting) of quickly rendered gestures, capturing the essence of emotion, painted directly from the paint-tube onto a horizontal canvas on the studio floor.

The bending over playing hell with my back!

Being less than comfortable at what I was doing, and even less sure as to the result, I used paint that was still lying in my ‘magic box’. Struggling to keep the colours clean and not to control the abstract approach.

The unusual technique entertaining those who passed the studio.
