I called this piece Divergent, because the meaning of the word resonated with how I felt when I created it:
‘tending to be different or develop in different directions.‘
This piece was different for me, because as a lover of bright and bold colours, I literally had to restrain my hand from reaching for MORE COLOURS DAMMIT I LOVE THEM ALL!!
My initial thoughts were that this was more of an exercise in self control than the creation of something I’d be proud of. I’m pleased to say I surprised myself.
I’m not usually one for a subtle colour pallet, instead opting for colours that are bright and ‘happy’. However this piece has taught me that sometimes less is more! I’m actually very pleased with the tranquillity and calm of this painting, which in turn makes me feel happy to look at, and I hope you feel the same.
I learn something new with every painting. Art really is a never ending journey of self discovery, and I want to keep on skipping, running, ambling, wandering and limping down whatever road it takes me on.
Whose with me?!
