This painting is part of a series of works where I have been exploring the key elements of artistic expression.
Colour, line, form, texture, shape, value, and space are the seven core elements of art. They often overlap and inform one another.
In this painting my key objective was to explore the visual effects of dividing the canvas into horizontal lines of varying shapes. For the colours, I used thin layers of acrylic inks built up of warm reds, oranges and browns & ochres with contrasting grey tones, and the occasional darker tone.
