Sunrise Series, Painting

A completely unrepeatable series of semi abstract paintings produced over several weeks from the same location, the South East corner of the bastide village of Castelnau de Montmiral in South West France.

In each instance the artist had to be on location ready and awaiting before sunrise.

We were experimenting to discover how would the colours, tones and composition reveal themselves through the artist, given the picture had to be completed in some 20 to 40 minutes as the sun was rising.

Sunrise, 28 July

Our point here being, recording a sunrise and a sunset leaves an artist no time to ‘think’ only to react; hence the two series on this web site.

This painting project was much influenced by ideas developed with Francis Pratt of The Painting School of Montmiral , Castelnau de Montmiral, SW France, objectives Francis came to name  “In Search of Power Painting”, meaning power in then stop.

Francis is a leading expert on colour vision.

His experiences include much scientific study and research at the University of Aberdeen.

Our project was something of a leap into the unknown in part because I tend to use a language to describe my colourful experiences which even Francis does not fully understand.

I am what is commonly known as  ‘colour blind‘, which I have described and illustrated in some detail elsewhere on this web site.

My visual reality clearly defies that over simple description, my paintings and photography show I have a rich colour experience, a quality I  share with some of the grand masters of the past.
