(24" x 30", oil on canvas)
I have relearned over the past few weeks the joys of working with a limited palette. Without my usual hit of colour, I am forced to concentrate on form and tone, which ultimately leads me to create these understated paintings that I have come to love.
The bonus of working tonally is that even the smallest suggestion of pure colour carries great weight and can add just the right amount of polish to a piece (think subtle scent instead of heady perfume).
