Red Bales

I am sometimes asked, ‘why did you come to the Tarn’. In part the answer is in these two paintings. 

Red Bales, day one

The painting

These paintings created on successive days were created while I was ‘unlearning’ what we know know to be my very irregular colour vision.

The subject was chosen as simple to draw, complex colouring and withing walking distance of Castelnau de Montmiral where I was studying at the painting school of Montmiral.

Deeply frustrated by the first painting I returned the next day and created a personal breakthrough, for the first time uninhibitedly, spontaneously painting the colours as I saw them.
