Colour Bomb! When the world just needs more colour!


My studies in abstract art continue to take to me to new, exciting places. It’s Destination Break-Through in the Heartland Studio this week folks!

So the back story is this… I have this 40x50cm canvas in my studio that I use as my “sounding out” board. I use this canvas if:

  • I have a new technique I want to try;
  • I have left-over paint on my brush that I don’t want to wash down the drain;
  • I just wanna have a slash-and-trash and lunge-and-expunge painting session…

Anyway, you get the point. This canvas was my “bi-yatch”. (I simply can’t think of a better word. If you can think on one, please let’s know!)

Sooooo…. I had got this canvas to a point where I was loving the way the colours were sitting against each other. If I was brave I would have put it up as a “study in colour” and lived with it. However, being that it’s not a canvas I was precious about (yet!), I pushed forward.

Thank goodness I did. Because wow, when I picked up my palette knife, magic happened.

I’m so thrilled with the result, I’ve already ordered a 1.8m x 1m board mounted on a box frame so I can re-create this as a BIG FEATURE ARTWORK.

Artist Statement:

Feel like an injection of HAPPY? Then this is the colour bomb the doctor ordered. Every colour used in this palette is bona-fide JOYFUL. From the lollypop pink to the sky blue, you’ll be transported to carefree days of whimsy and flow.

Here she is! The Colour Bomb!
