Portfolio: Colour Works - from Wallpapers early work

These paintings were made by taking a section from a Wallpaper and reproducing the image to create a subject. Like a grid I then used the drawn lines to experiment with colour and pattern. I purposely used combinations of colour outside my comfort zone, then added pattern to break up the zones of flat colour and pull the paintings together. I did these works when I was doing a lot of figurative line drawings so the concentration of colour was a deliberate departure.
