Palette of Five

Palette of 5

In between commissions I have been working on developing print for a group exhibition. The Palette of 5 exhibition of prints and paintings has just taken place with work by myself and for other artists; Rosie Woods, Monica Chrysostomou, Sue Rentoul and Chris Cook.

Below are another two, Midnight Cowboy and Stole, focussing on the intuitive arrangement of form and colour.
