                           Colour Test   Oils on board   5 x 5 inches  

Imaginary worlds are not reserved for the very young.  The child in me wanted to push the paint around to create a land and seascape which went beyond the realms of reality.  In fact, if you look closely, the bottom of the picture might be interpreted as a landscape whilst the top is resembling a sea and beach at sunset.  

It began as a study of the beach at Scarborough in Yorkshire but it wasn't coming together as I had hoped.  It started to test my patience but rather than put it aside as a failure I attacked it with gusto and pushed it beyond belief.  

Once more...not a masterpiece but I am happy that it lives to tell a tale.  A 'testing' piece.
