This piece is slightly different to my recent work. I see it as being more ‘busy’, but with less colour. I chose calm colours in the blue and purples, but wanted to add a degree of warmth with the pinks. I used some different ‘thinners’ when creating this piece and enjoyed watching the different paint colours working into each other. I am pleased with the end result and will definitely look at developing this technique.
When my brother looked at this painting, he said that he could see a ‘galaxy of thousands of stars’. I like his interpretation. I like to look at this painting from a distance, but feel it has to be really appreciated when viewed close up, so you can really see all the different colours and how they have been dispersed.
