I FINISHED THIS PICTURE IN AUGUST THIS YEAR. IT IS A NEW IDEA. THE SQUARES AND RECTANGLES ARE ADDED IN PENCIL ON THE RAW CANVAS IN NO PARTICULAR ORDER AS THOUGH THEY WERE BLOWN BY THE WIND. BUT THE WORK IN THE PICTURE IS VERY DEMANDING ONCE THE PAINTING BEGINS. ALL THE SHAPES HAVE TO BE ISOLATED WITH MASKING TAPE AND BECAUSE I LOVE TO USE OIL PAINT I HAVE TO WAIT UNTIL THE PAINT IS DRY BEFORE STARTING NEIGHBOURING SHAPES. I AM VERY PLEASED THE WAY THE COLOURS ENHANCE EACH OTHER AND ADD MOVEMENT TO THE PAINTING. ITS AN IDEA I WILL CONTINUE TO DEVELOP. AW
