“Action Man Blue” is another of my artworks which follows an “angular” theme I became absorbed with a few years ago when working at adaptations of the French General Vauban’s fortification plans… basically the compositions have lots of angles.
Paintings which look relatively simple to produce are often more complicated than meet the eye because of the necessity to allow - such as with this composition - each coat or layer of paint to dry thoroughly before applying another coat on top even if it is the same tone or colour, because of not wanting them to smudge, mix or merge. Even though there are only three basic colours used in this work, there could be several layers in places where I have gone over the design in a different direction two or three times with white and again, or alternately, in blue/indigo or black with my current favourite 100 cms / 4 inch wide brush.
