Van Gogh Goes Abstract
A floral abstract in bold decisive strokes and swirls, laid down with oil pigment sticks over charcoal with wee bits of the charcoal showing through here and there. Energy flows directly from hand to Arche's oil watercolour paper which captures it. You can see that at first, I thought I was done with the image being mostly black charcoal and some oil paint applied as a thin glaze. But, no, that was impossible to leave as now, my work is all about colour, boldness of attack, visually engaging and challenging. It's pure unbridled creation.
I can't help but think that van Gogh would have LOVED pigment sticks as he used to transmit the bright and bold colours of his palette. This abstract is something he might just have cooked up! My ode to one of my favourite painters.
