I used to paint like this... (and sometimes still do)
My latest abstracts bear little resemblance to the above landscape.
|Noughts And Crosses|
While many casual viewers might think this is a step backwards, for me it is an enormous progression. The same rules apply to these works as to a more realist painting. It is all about shapes, colours, tones, mark making, etc. In my new, enlightened, view my abstract paintings have more going for them than previous works.
I would love to hear your views on this.
