Winter Harbour, Nova Scotia

Painting Description

While some of my paintings are inspired by a light effect or a particular activity or subject, this ink and watercolour drawing/painting is based on the play of colour. This small inlet does exist, not far from Halifax, but I am more concerned here with the heat of the reds and ochres against the cool blue of the snow and water. In that aspect, this painting shares some common ground with Helen Frakenthaler’s colour field paintings. I realize that everyone approaches a painting through his/her own doorway, and I would be shocked if this colour idea was the first consideration for the viewer. At one point, I thought that I might base a larger, more complex, work on this design.
