3 thoughts on “Painting with Colour: Introduction”
It will be a while before I have time to delve into the text but I must say how lovely it is to see the Esplanade and Breath paintings, they are a delight.
This introduction sets the scene for important topics that lie ahead. I love the paintings in Figures 1, 2 and 3, all those ‘colour excitements’ and more. I look forward to reading on.
Thankyou for including me in your zoom talks
Really interesting and great participation
