Desert blooms

Desert blooms
Acrylic on paper
80cm x 59.5cm

This is my favourite of a whole series of abstract expressionism paintings on paper that I did during two classes at The Learning Connexion with Gary Freemantle. I had great fun dripping, throwing, dribbling and splashing paint around in the style of Jackson Pollack. Without a subject to guide you, and only colour, line and form to work with, it is painting by instinct and not easy. This work reminds me a bit of Aboriginal art.
