Red Line Above the Water
I’ve recently embarked on a set of about 20 small paintings where sky, sea and land divide each painting into 3 zones. This will be an exercise in colour and also discipline where I limit myself to a strict theme of using the 3 zones in a realistic yet abstract format. This set of three paintings (tryptich) are part of the same project, in this case I have been applying the paint and then using a cloth to take off the surplus paint, this has created thin layers of colour and detail. At one point I scraped a thin layer of red paint with the help of a ruler along the ‘horizon’, hence the title.
