Found an old journal with my early blog posts and thought it would be fun to share a few of them.


Blog #3 - Painting Process


"I'm very interested in contrast. The tension between light and dark, busy and quiet, soft and hard. I try to work the composition in and around my areas of contrast. I rarely prepare canvases before painting - I just get into the colour while I'm feeling it, and I like the places where the bare canvas shows through. If I work quickly and intuitively, it works out well. Too much thinking and planning and it becomes forced and ridiculous."

This is actually a tripdych (only 2 canvases are shown above). It depicts a time when I was struggling with depression and the act of painting was one of the ways I dealt with it.
