Colour Form 3 Oils on stretched canvas
First painting 2012
Here is an example of how my work can become a new painting by re-working parts of the canvas. This one began as Colour Form 3 in 2012 and at the time I was happy with my picture which hung in my studio.
A year or so later when preparing work for a solo show I had an idea of partly destroying the image to create a different piece. Looking at both images it is possible to see where I made the changes in colour and shapes. Colour Form 3 lost the soft organic feel and became harder edged and more of a still life than landscape.
Twice as Blue is now in a black float frame and was displayed in a show at Sam Scorer Gallery in September 2014. It has returned to my studio/gallery.
