I used my hand mostly in making this painting. A different feeling from using a paint brush or other tools as I can actually literally feel the painting as it evolves.
I wanted to experiment using the colour brown in this painting. A colour that I don't use frequently as I'm still trying to understand its communication.
Brown is the colour of earth and in my early childhood I experienced living in an environment surrounded by sand and a lot of it. Brown was the most dominant natural colour that I experienced in many years of my life.
Brown is associated with security, healing, organic, home and warmth. But it also represents autumn and winter. Brown provides feelings of history and connection as well as cozy feelings of relaxation.
Initially, I wasn't sure which direction was the painting moving to, but it started to come together slowly each time I added different colours and felt the painting in my hand.
The painting process progressed a lot smoother than I expected as I wasn't sure about communicating and understanding the language of brown.
I'm so pleased with the end result and it encourages me to use brown in other paintings.
