This is the first completed work for this summer’s exhibition for Urban Outfitters. Unfortunately, the colours have not translated exactly in photograph as they look in real life. They are luminous, bright, and that yellow is like a shock of lemon. This is the basis of my colour scheme for the other works. Some will be rockin out in orange, whilst others will be calmed down with that gorgeous teal blue colour that is making the hot colours pop in the above artwork.
I’ve also decided to activate the white areas more; using white as a colour instead of something to outline the other colours. I think this could work really well. Today I have been buoyant, full of all shades of excitement as I feel this is like Torness Take 2. When I created that Torness Power Station piece, I felt like I had achieved something new and fresh, something I hadn’t done for quite some time. I’ve got that lovin’ feeling again and I’m jazzed as anything.
