Night Music (1), 20" x 24"
Acrylic on canvas
I began using acrylics from time to time after 2010. Different materials mean different ways of painting introducing new opportunities. I find acrylics useful for making the bolder statements with a more immediate impact and where I want to concentrate more on a formal composition with colours and shapes ‘floating’ in a shallow space.
Music in night gardens is an occasional theme I return to. Gardens at night take on a completely different characteristic to the daytime. If music is also being performed then the sounds can become like aural blooms.
