desert spectrum shift colour abstract contemporary painting

459  Desert spectrum shift  (landscape format)

91x122cm, acrylic on stretched canvas, ready to hang,  NFS
Artist's collection

Abstract painting inspired by the unique colours of the Australian desert: burnt oranges,
sandy yellows, faded driftwood and Spinifex greens.   A study in the relationships of such
special colours; harmonies, contrasts, counterpoints and accents. 

At the same time the composition is relying on a pleasing subdivision of the
rectangular area and resulting in a lively pattern with a musical rhythm.

 Structured yet random, thoughtful yet intuitive, intellectual yet accidental.
