Noontide Light was inspired by the hot rays of the summer sun through the glowing parching clouds.
I started this painting with acrylic paint and blended it like watercolors. Although I guide the paint, I also let the colors and shapes develop naturally.
Then I painted over that, making sure to let some of the under painting show through. The interplay of colors creates a sense of movement and immediacy that keeps the painting fresh.
The under painting process I use lends itself to creating organic forms, which I then tighten up with structural lines. This layering technique mirrors the larger theme of my work: the hard edges of our structured world contrasted against the organic forms of the natural world.
