Let your imagination take you away with this rectangular minimal painting. The subtle shifts of colour in the large rectangle can be intriguing and the lights and brights around the border add to that feeling. A minimalist painting with a geometric design painted in mostly muted watercolour with just a little acrylic in places.
Art is about creating something that has never been seen before, something unique. Few can copy a truly minimal painting and minimal rectangular paintings are particularly difficult. They are not common and add something different and unique to art, paintings that trigger your imagination and let it flow.
Alan Brain has been painting minimal art for several years with the challenge of saying more with less.
