CHROMATIC

 

Random feather - cobalt & burnt umberI have never been all that bothered with colour.  As a printmaker I have been obsessed with achieving good, opaque and solid blacks – get two printmakers together and they’ll spend most of their time discussing the relative values of the black parts of their works.

But recently a funny thing has happened to me, I’ve been getting really excited about COLOUR!  I have no explanation for this, Am I trying to cheer myself up?  Or am I expressing some kind of inner harmony?  Who knows, but I’m enjoying the fun of discovering pleasing and unusual colour combinations.
