The artist used the ‘rule of thirds’ vertically, as his structural choice in this semi-abstract painting of two skydivers, waiting to jump.
Several thin paint mixes were applied over each other on the canvas, and this gives the painting a layered appearance. There are multiple colours and shapes. Yellow and white tinted colours outline the two skydivers’ bodies.
The colours suggest that this may be early in the morning. The light on the jumpers in the background is golden.
In this painting, the artist enjoyed swirling his brush freely in order to create a memory of his own skydiving experience.
Acrylic on Masonite, date unknown. (Cleaned and framed. An additional skydiver and yellow highlight to helmet added during restoration.)
