Bigger Paintings

I have started several new large canvases and I’m beginning to channel my inspiration into the paintings. I want to continue themes around the relationship between walking in the landscape and the satellite technology circling earths orbit, but I don’t want to be dictated by the concept and I’m trying to allow the work to develop organically. I am also trying to imagine the landscape from different view points without any particular hierarchy. Certain colours are appearing that have more of a literal equivalence to colours found in the landscape- blue for sea and sky, green and ochre for earth and so on. I am finding myself painting out the more obvious colours with their associations and explore colours that are personal to me reflecting my own internal logic and subjectivity. The paintings below are works in progress and may change to a smaller or larger extent, but it’s good to have made a start with the bigger canvases.
