‘Truthville’ (on right) alongside ‘Hope Falls/hope falls...’ in the studio’ after first session. I’m going to try and make them work as a pair/diptych. Had a grey/pink colour-scheme in my head so mixed up a few colours before starting. First thoughts: simplify! The right hand side needs ripping up - too many colours, too many horizontals, too distracting. Truthville (the orange dot near the Vermont border) is further north than Hope Falls (blue dot on left painting) so I am going to shrink everything in new painting by 10% so that dots are on the same eye level. The 2 slightly different scales will also add an interesting element of discord to the pair. Could be a late night in the studio.
