Forest abstract

Click to enlarge

Many viewers (perhaps most!) will see this picture as a representation of chaos  –  or, less politely, as ‘rubbish’!

I like it’!

The subject comprises dead leaves and grasses, with signs of new growth breaking through.  It was a small area just ahead of me as I walked through the New Forest.

But it is not the subject matter that attracts me, it is the way in which various pictorial elements  –  line, colour harmony, shape, texture, balance etc  –  combine to create a natural abstract.  The rhythms of the contrasting lines guide the eye through the ‘canvas’.  I also like the ‘feel’ of the image  –  my instinctive, non-analytical response.

The picture is ‘as taken’, except for a touch of saturation.

Abstract 191 ‘The Protest’

This abstract picture is derived from reflections on a swimming pool.  I feel it conveys a sense of tremendous energy, almost communal defiance  –  hence the possible title.

Abstract 158

There is a struggle of mythological proportions taking place in this picture.

Or, alternatively, it is just a photo of garlic cloves!
