Bold blue, outspoken orange. What drama and action is going on here.
Every brushstroke reveals to us …. more.
More depth, more energy, more movement.
They are a Language.
They’re a unique tool, we artists can use to communicative… something.
Blue and Orange
Each stroke laden with paint, is telling.
Nature inspired, this painting is made more effective with its use of the minimalist color palette.
Blue and Orange.
This Complementary Pairing is my favorite of the three pairs: Red/Green Yellow/Purple Blue/Orange
Inspired by the Western Australian landscape, I wanted to impart the subject essence the colors on the brush would provide.
Not the rocks, nor the trees.
Or even the stark cobalt blue sky we see so often.
It was intended to be, abstract.
Distilling a Vision
One could imagine, the true masters, the likes of Fred Williams, John Olsen or Robert Juniper, perhaps Pro Hart.
Taking in the land, and then distilling it.
Laying it out before us, on their canvases, in wide swathes of brushstrokes, dollops and smearings of paint.
Utterly and completely their’s alone.
Their interpretation of what they heard and saw and felt.
Out there, amongst the silence – that is not silent- of the bushland wilds.

When all was created I have a feeling a brush was involved and many many brush strokes ❤
I am very drawn to this one. The color combination is sparkling. I see a feather bending in the breeze also. There is movement.
With the brushstrokes you’ve made the reaction to the waves come alive. The seaweed has life as it sweeps back with the receding water.
