My tutor said “Wild pyrotechnics”, expressing his astonishment, at The Painting School of Montmiral.
Under his guidance, painting ‘plien aire’, I was developing my unusually complex, highly individual colour experience to advantage, in the manner and tradition of Turner, Cezanne and van Gogh.
These breakthrough paintings “Red Bales 1 and 2” where a key moment in my understanding of colour as described in some detail via the ‘Further Reading’ link in the text below.
I learnt to overcome difficulties with my eccentric colour vision, learned to release the “Wild Pyrotechnics”, when I choose, or see as a colour normal person, thus turning what many see as a visual handicap, to advantage.
To see if I could achieve this was the main reason, ‘why I went to the Tarn’, although at the time I acted partly upon intuition, I would not have phrased it quite like that at the time
Deeply frustrated by the first painting I returned the next day and created a personal breakthrough, for the first time uninhibited by my unstable colour vision, spontaneously painting the colours as I saw them.
I have kept these two landscape paintings as points of reference, now I’m willing to let them go.
Each painting measuring 40 x 50 cm (15¾” x 19¾”), oils, for exhibition and available, ex studio. available, £1,200.00

These paintings, created on successive days were made while I was ‘unlearning’ colour, exploring my very irregular colour vision.
The subject was chosen as simple to draw, potentially complex to colour and within walking distance of Castelnau de Montmiral where I was studying at the painting school of Montmiral.
