IN THE STUDIO
Works in Progress, Videos & Sketchbook Meanderings
In my current series, In Memory, I'm trying to cultivate a sense of calm and simplicity. Keeping the colour palette limited to two or three pigments helps create the energy I'm going for, but it also means I need to be extremely selective with the pigments I choose. And that means taking the time to experiment and explore. It's definitely a process.
Typically, I know I’m getting somewhere when the colours spark some sort of memory. In this case, I’m reminded of cross-country road trips and the beautiful drive across the Canadian prairies. I’m a sucker for wide open spaces and always found that leg of the journey so inspiring. There's still some more playing to be done, but this colour combination is certainly stirring up "the feels".
