Untitled No. 76

The first painting from my 13th series of abstracts.
With this set I wanted to explore depth a little further, utilising what I termed a “double-background” approach. This meant blending a pattern/motif into a background wash as before, then repeating the process with a related motif (which was again reprised in the foreground for added depth and continuity, a development from the series 12 paintings).
I also continued experimenting with three-dimensional imagery, (which I’ve often found to be a bit of a challenge when working with abstraction, but one worth taking).
This is another relatively simple work, with an uncluttered appearance.
It also has a nice sense of depth and a strongly-defined colour and tonal contrast.
