The Canopies (44 x 21.5 cm)
This is a very simple, yet effective painting.
The artist used soft pastel colours to convey feelings of lightness, floating, and the freedom that is experienced when skydiving.
The canopies are well placed on the canvas, and the colours of the two larger canopies attract the viewer’s attention. Gold colours are complemented by the blue of the sky, and the three smaller, blue canopies.
The artist graduated colours across the page to keep the painting ‘fluid’. In so doing, the flow of air and relaxed movement of the parachutes as they move forward, have been emphasized.
