This painting is the first in a series of abstract work entitled 'Departure Series', started in December 2015 and an ongoing project.
These pure abstracts are my responses to the anxiety and chaos of modern times.
I have approached the painting process 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 pieces, with the intention of making them much more brooding and thought provoking.
The oil paints are a very good quality pigment on a Premium Wide depth 10oz. 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.
