Back to Basics

If I am going in the right direction with subject matter and the reading supporting that, then now is the time to get back to basics with regard to materials.

For years I have painted intuitively, sometimes with glorious technicoloured results.  Now is the time to inform that intuitive approach.  Starting with paint I am going to explore colour combinations and properties, so that I have more control, particularly with regard to subtlety.

I will be researching the history of colour and the impact different colours have on our emotions.  This together with my continuing research into harnessing the unconscious mind creatively, will inform my research question for this year,  which is currently, What Am I Trying to Say?

I am starting with yellow and blue mixed green






I don’t feel this way has worked so I am going to try a simpler method.  I want to build a reference library of colour combinations and reactions.
