NH486 ‘Shadows 16 - Yellow Pergola Post’ 20 x 20 inches   51 x 51 cm   (Diagonal  28¼ inches  71.5 cm)   Acrylic on Canvas    2017 
           An apparently very simple arrangement of shapes and colours is enriched by the broken  surface of the wall and the controlled use of tone to create edges which give solidity and  create pictorial depth. The intention here, as in many other paintings, is to perceive the  opportunities for aesthetically simple colour shape relationships in what I see in the world around me. Balances between verticals and horizontals and strong hues and contrasting tones  become the essential formal elements of the painting.
