new paintings

These two paintings will be on the wall at my exhibition opening on 1st of feb (details above).
They are painted on what is becoming my standard size of 1200 x 900 sheets of Masonite with pine backing frames. Both are acrylic and Indian ink (no titles yet).

I am enjoying being in the space between abstract and representational painting. This painting also has the original photograph playing a big role in the representation with silhouette and poster realism.

The sky blue is also becoming a bit of a standard, although it is a little different every time. Pale blue is such an inviting colour. I discovered this blue when doing paintings for Maxwell's bedroom.... its such a boy colour! It should be noted that I also use a lot of pink.
