After another session in the studio, the painting now includes glazes and further work on some details so, Seeking refuge is, I think, now finished.

Colourfield: painting scrabble

Firstly, organic shapes to form five distinct areas were drawn, secondly, random colours were chosen, one colour at time, to mix and apply (with some final adjustments). By playing the class exercise, painting scrabble, this painting, “Colourfield” was made.
