Bright Outlook (60 x 43.5 cm)
In this bright painting of a skydiver’s profile, the artist has used contrasting, vivid, yellow and violet colours for effect. They accentuate each other yet help in toning down the hues.
The expressionless, yellow, mask like face takes up almost half the canvas. Brush lines are smooth and controlled, and layering of paint in the background gives a textured appearance.
Full light shines on the skydiver’s face, and reflects from his blue goggles. The green edged circle in the lower left corner may represent light. Meanwhile, an eye guards the skydiver. It is worth noting that the artist placed eyes and blue goggles in many of his paintings.
