Sunrise 23.07

unique is an over worked word which can fairly be applied to these unrepeatable artworks, all painted plien aire, as it happened.

My intention here being to push hard on my limits, to see what happened.

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.

Recording a sunrise or a sunset in this manner leaves an artist no time to ‘think’ only to spontaneously, naturally, react; hence the two series on this web site.

In each instance I had to plan and prepare in advance, had to be on location ready and awaiting before sunrise.

You could acquire or commission a painting like this…

Our project was something of a leap into the unknown and it shows in these remarkably successful paintings.

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.

Because of my irregular colour vision, I tend to use a language to describe my colourful experiences which even Francis does not fully understand.

Francis is a leading expert on colour vision who’s experiences include much scientific study and research at the University of Aberdeen.

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.
