These paintings were fun to do, quick and relatively easy. They came about as the result of drawing and enlarging, a section from an Autumn leaf. I have displayed the paintings in the same, horizontal format for convenience. What you will notice is a landscape quality throughout. I call this Nature’s Barcode.
Some of the colours are not what one would expect, but they are personal and the result is that we see things that we know in a (sometimes) very different way.
Autumn is about decay, disintegration, change and that’s what the group strove to achieve in their major paintings in the second session that i will talk about tomorrow.
