'Coaster'   30x40cms

'Coaster' was selected for the 2016 ING The Discerning Eye, by Chris Orr RA

The return of image- a fine resolution to a troublesome painting. A small painting is often more difficult to work than a larger canvas because there is no space.  I was actually packing up my space in Open Studios when I thought I'd give it one more go.  I forced a harbour into the over-busy paint - and brought in Mars Violet, Rose and magenta pinks to set off the green and bring space and clarity.  I saw the boat shape and worked with it. I am enjoying the way it sits with its turquoise twist and the rhythm of verticals linking to the vertical edge of the mark at the stern.
