Geometric Rainbow (60.5 x 45.5 cm)
In this painting the artist used a pen to randomly draw free, loose lines all over the canvas. As they intersected shapes were formed. Then they were subdivided if necessary. The shapes were then filled with colour.
The interesting part of this painting is the white centre. It is surrounded by various hues, tints and shades. Red related colours were placed at important points on the canvas to balance the painting, and to encourage the viewer’s eye to travel around it. Yellow is closer to the centre and adds energy to the painting.
The artist has highlighted some line with a fine paint brush. When viewed from a distance some of the shapes take on almost recognizable forms. The painting has an overall bright tone, and the artist had a relaxing time creating this painting.
