This is a new painting that is in a different style for me. I also used the colours yellow, green and orange which are three colours I rarely use. It is loosely in the style of Solbes Arjona who is one of my favourite Spanish artists. I did it as a one-off for the purposes of learning and doing something with a wider colour range.

Beautiful piece. Love the colours. Each time I look at the painting I get drawn into a different perspective and something new emerges each and every time.

Thanks - I hadn't thought of the graffiti link but I think you are right - there is a connection.


That is very kind of you. In spite of the fact I said it is a one-off, I am working on another!

Tell me more about Solbes Arjona! I looked Solbes online, but I got little info that was in English. By the way, nice move into a new realm.
