Blending and layers
As an expriment I am working on what I am calling Special blends, Inspired by Gerhart Richter's paintings I am exploring the possibilites to see if
it is possible to expand on the idea. I like the spontaneous colour combinations dragging an object over a painted surface makes, these first two paintings could be hung together as they are similar, but are not an extension of each other. They are worked in the same colours. I am looking at working on a small series of canvases bases on a Birch tree in my garden it has a spectactular bark that peals to reveil a white trunk, the paper bake that peals off is orange. A wonderful colour combination whites dark grays and orange.
