This recent painting is an intensity painting heavily interrupted by those two black lines. Painting intensities requires delicate use of colour with as few value changes. They can be beautiful - this one, at least for me needed a powerful difference hence the two black lines

striking minimalism - two black lines

Another one of my recent paintings but it is hard to see on a computer screen but this is an intensity painting. There are colour variations within the large rectangle that you cannot see. The interruption  that too is intensity but of a different value.

Serene Minimal Paintings

Some surrealism here, a lot of surrealism perhaps, to create space with meaning - the symbols say so much.

Dorset-Art--Just-Space

Now I must be honest this one is almost recognisable as a place. It was certainly inspired by the view from one of our regular dog walks.  However as usual I have tried to paint the feeling of the place not the place itself.

Dorset-Art--Just-Space
vibrant paintings in watercolour- Beyond

This recent painting is similar to the one above (colours apart) but I have added some of my geometry... and a pencil line or three. Anything added is intended to emphasise the reaction you have - not to entertain you. But it's all fun!

I may have got carried away with this one but I loved creating a sense of  uplift (? not the right word, it's hard to describe). Anyway it's up to you to see what you see.

modern surreal art joyful fun - Radiate
Striking watercolour called Look Up!

Oh Boy I just had to put in those strong rectangles at the bottom! All that wonderful sky was needing a foil. And of course it is then partly representational but that's okay.

Of all my recent paintings I have to say this one is my personal favourite. It's not everyone's taste I know but the simple (not easy) design captures my attention and puts over the reaction I want. It took me ages to get to this but it was certainly worth the effort.
