Colour revisited (tiny)

Had a long strip of canvas off-cut, so I cut it into lots of small pieces. Used them to try painting in colour again, mostly encouraged by the people at the Berlin exhibition saying they’d like to see my paintings in colour and that my colour blindness might prove to be “interesting”. I really enjoyed making these, and was finally able to forget about what I “knew” the colours to be (based on the labels on the tubes) and just concentrate on what I see. These photos aren’t great – I forgot how difficult it is to get colour accuracy in photos.

I’ve been looking at a lot of Kippenberger lately, and it shows in some of these, but that’s okay with me.

This one is my favourite. It’s larger than the others, which gave me more space to vary the marks and forms. The black and white painting I’ve been doing lately informed the way I used tone in this picture.
