It is now extremely clear to me that I am currently on a very personal journey through grief. If the starting position was the Darkness painting and the Study of Darkness, then I have moved on to being able to work with colour again. To the point where I am now; With these 4 individual A4 paintings I have added an additional layer to the
structural pieces. The black lines and shapes come from the doodles that I started to do last year as well as sketches that I have been doing in my personal journal.
This small added complexity unites the colour shapes in a more formulaic way than just the white over layered shapes.
I have also started to create these with a colour wheel to hand so that I can begin to properly understand how I might incorporate colour theory into the paintings.
