Balance. Oil and pencils on canvas board. 42 x 32 cm.
A balance of hot and cold colours, detail and blank space.
The board was primed with thick acrylic which soaked the oil paint up, making the paint look like dry goache. The composition became a series of right angles. The colours have a fair amount of Naples yellow or Prussian blue.
A detail showing the use of a little pencil, just to give the work more focus.
