Rhapsody in Red
Oil and cold wax on canvas board. 50 cm x 60 cm. Professionally framed.
This painting started with a desire to layer rich reds and other jewel colours, scraping back to reveal interesting textures and patterns in the layers beneath. The colours I chose so intuitively then suggested a real feeling of opulence, and a composition slowly emerged suggesting perhaps some luscious fruit, and then a vessel pouring forth golden bubbles of joy. A painting to evoke the richness and joy of life.
