New little studies

In the last two or three months, my technique feels like it has taken a giant leap forward – and then gotten stuck haha. But a leap forward none the less… They never reproduce on the internet as well as I would like, but I hope you enjoy.

So usually I don’t paint bright, nor do I use pure Cadmium Orange or Cadmium Yellow, especially not in the same painting… So this is a departure for me, a very, very bright departure… It will be interesting to see where this one ends up, It is making me SUPER ANXIOUS having all these colour things as well as tonal contrasts happening in one picture. I am trying to tell myself it’s like when I was young and had only worn black shoes ever then finally I got a pair of white and I couldn’t stop anxiously staring at my feet going ARGH! haha. It’s from a power station in Melbourne looking along the tracks, can you tell where?
