Living Reef & Molten

Living Reef. Mixed media on 12x12 inch canvas.

Every once in a while, I try again to ‘paint an abstract’ but this time (I think it was in 2013?), rather than setting out to ‘paint an abstract’, I just played with colours I liked. “Living Reef” and “Molten” (below) are the results of such an exercise. They were fun to paint; I don’t know that they’re particularly successful compositions but I do like the colours and I remember I got to a point with each when ‘it felt finished’.
