I have been working with figurative shapes for a long time and I enjoy the way colours work together to help bring the shape along. There is a narrative going on. I am inspired by body language and the unspoken, emotional depths. I d discovered Ink-Tense pastels and the clarity of colour plus the ability to use water and not lose the intensity was exciting to me and this idea was in a sketchbook done in watercolour. There is something about using colour to make a shape come forward or back. To counterbalance other shapes and colours. Using such a hands on medium made this very personal to me.
