Random Residuals 2

W ith changes in the studio space still working themselves out it is amazing how things percolate to the top of the pile. Yesterday, I discovered a group of harbour sketches that need attention and some unfinished landscape work but the ones that caught my eye were the Random Residule paintings  The energy of the random residual project is evident in the work that is created from paint remaining at the end of "real painting". The one requirement at the beginning of work is that the paint can only be applied using tools not called "art tools". The work energizes through discovery of the unexpected as colour, texture and form considerations are made on the spot revealing surprising results.
