    Viewpoint really makes a difference. I like them all, especially seeing them together. (K)

    • The more I did, the less up and down seemed to matter. Not that it doesn’t make a difference, but that right way up didn’t mean so much. Following your and N’s blog has definitely started to make me see and look at things differently. Would I have turned these upside down 2 years ago? Probably not. 🙂

  2. For me the middle pair work best – perhaps the colours are more unified and the introduction of the red is very muted.

    • Yes I think I agree Graham. The colours correspond in mood to the wet winter earth I think. The thick band of colour reminds me of looking at different layers in soil revealed by a spade cut. Don’t think I’ve actually done that since a kid, but the image has stayed with me. I did spend a lot of time in the garden as a child!

    I’m into the top two only because the lines are so clear and sharp I could sort of burrow my way into the painting.

  4. It does have a striking clarity that one. The water looks icy and unforgiving. The bottom green and red one seems to have transported itself into a fantasy landscape with spires on the horizon. I might crop the top off to the red line and see what that looks like. Thanks for commenting and sparking a new idea 🙂

    Hi OA
    These are striking. I always like the bold and sparing approach you have to drawing but these take this to a new level.

    I like all of these together. Both upside down and right side up.

  7. These are so raw and experimental that it is fun to view them all together like this, outside authority. When I look at your work, I always imagine your hand and how you might be moving it across the page. Thanks for posting these!

    Coming back to these, which I had seen, from your more recent work, shows the diversity of your work, and your cognitive and technical versatility. I am so impressed.
