This oil painting is the third in a series of abstract work entitled 'Departure Series', started in 2015 and an ongoing project.
These pure abstracts are my responses to the anxiety and chaos of modern times.
I have approached the painting technique in a semi conscious way, initially allowing an emotional response to dictate the work. The limited colour palette was a conscious decision to restrain the mood and feel of the piece, with the intention of making it much more brooding and thought provoking.
The oil paints are a very good quality pigment, with linseed oil and various painting mediums. The painting is varnished with a high quality lustre oil paint varnish that will help protect the painting from dust, grease and UV damage. I use a greener alternative to traditional turpentine and white spirit.
