Abstract 235

 

Although this abstract is in monochrome, its lines and tonal contrasts create an energy and movement that I find pleasing and full of vitality.

Abstract 177

I like this image  ….  a lot!  I like its free flowing lines of different weight and thickness, the variety of textures, and the interconnectedness of random shapes.  The (almost) complete absence of colour encourages my eyes to explore the movements and rhythms within the image.

I’ve not attempted to suggest a narrative title  –  I just enjoy the piece on its own terms.

The wine rack

The appearance of my wine rack comprises simply a column of square openings.  But when viewed at an angle the strong diagonals and shadows create bold images.

Frosted roof

Another roof and another pattern, created this time by a sharp overnight frost on the tiles of a  garage roof opposite.

Abstract 123 ‘Shades of Pink’

When introducing Abstract 122 ‘Crocus’ I wrote, ‘My interest is primarily in the colours, the lines, the textures and, above all, the feelings evoked in the viewer.’  The source of the present ‘abstract’ is a cyclamen and the colour range, as the title indicates, is restricted to shades of pink. Again I am mainly interested in the instinctive response of the viewer.  This is not a botanical record.
