When I stand in front of a painting, I will think about different things as I react to what I am seeing. I may find the work poetic, vibrant, disturbing, melancholy....
When I stand in front of my canvas and I have to determine my colour palette,my thinking is quite different. What I think about is how to translate the complexity of the colours that I see into pigments and how to get them all to work together. I have a difficult problem that I have to solve. This is the challenge of any and every painting.
