This work also began as a brief sketch in a notebook. One of the themes of the work was that the coloured shape elements would be created from acrylic ‘card’ rather than ‘painted’ onto the canvas. This approach would allow the contours between the coloured elements and the ‘black’ lines to appear sharp and clear - something that would not really be possible with surface application of paint. It is also very time consuming to use the spray painting technique to establish sharp contoured boundaries on curves. What comes out of the picture is the separate vertical and horizontal alignment of the contours of the shapes. The colour palate is quite diverse, and based on the format, endless variations of the colour space can be imagined. In terms of technique, it is important to work with mounted acrylic paper which is sufficiently thick to prevent buckling when mounted on the canvas surface. There is scope here for development of ‘signature’ elements - where designs vary but utilise a common recognisable production method.
