Colour and Contrast
COLOUR AND CONTRAST
IMAGES STUDIO TOUR 2017
My paintings are about colour.I have used the same palette for thirty years and I am amazed at how I am able to create new colours. It is all in the mixing. It is all about proportions. I am always mixing blue, yellow and red in different proportions to create colours. I create chromatic blacks by mixing different colours. I use white and buff. There are endless combinations. And that is what excites me as an artist.
My paintings are about the contrast of dark and light. (Notan is the Japanese word for the black/white principle of design.) My paintings have strong value contrasts. They are moody and evoke emotion in the viewer.
