Steady Pace

Acrylic and sand on canvas
69.5 x 71.5cm

Steady Pace was an opportunity to focus on flatness and time, with a more minimal and considered use of line. The treatment of the canvas, although very textured up close, creates an overall flatness and velvety depth to the colours. The gestures resemble “quick and automatic” digital drawing, but in contrast the process was slow, painted with great care. The muted pallete allows the subtlety in tones to come through, with the chartreuse line ‘glowing’ under different lighting.
