Colour can be learnt, printing c-type photographic prints helped hone my understanding further. As did the study of photography, especially the work of William Eggleston. Who loved the play between green and red and used this combination time and again to stunning effect. I spent days in the print room of the Victoria and Albert museum looking at these gorgeous dye transfer prints first hand. Once learnt colour can come naturally to a certain extent. Though ultimately I think that it's use and a fluent intuitive understanding is a gift that you are born with. .

People discuss influences, for me I'm like a sponge I take things in and draw from my subconscious. Whether it be visual, sounds, words etc... everything has a natural rhythm that's felt and experienced - even if we don't realise it at the time. Here, I'm sharing colour combinations found in nature. .

'Two in one'
43"x62"
109cm x 157.5cm
Mixed medium on canvas (sold) .
.
For me one of the greatest ever verses of song and a great inspiration ❤️
.
"And take me disappearing through the smoke rings of my mind
Down the foggy ruins of time
Far past the frozen leaves
The haunted frightened trees
Out to the windy beach
Far from the twisted reach of crazy sorrow
Yes, to dance beneath the diamond sky
With one hand waving free
Silhouetted by the sea
Circled by the circus sands
With all memory and fate
Driven deep beneath the waves
Let me forget about today until tomorrow"
Bob Dylan - Hey! Mr Tambourine man .

Take me on a trip upon your magic swirling ship
My senses have been stripped
My hands can't feel to grip
My toes too numb to step
Wait only for my boot heels to be wandering - Mr Tambourine Man - Bob Dylan
