With the onset of Autumn and the realisation of many cooler days ahead, I started to reminisce on the weekend about the Summer just gone. This thought alone was enough to inspire me to do a new modern abstract painting using bright bold primary colours to remind me of the energy Summer emits. All I needed was an idea and I didn’t have to think back far to get my inspiration.
In January, I was lucky enough to head over to Queenstown in New Zealand. It became very clear immediately why so many movies were made in that country, the landscape was just breathtaking. I took many photos on this holiday but one stood out in particular, a little boardwalk I had seen on a road trip to Glenorchy. With few souls around I was drawn to this boardwalk and more importantly the lamp post that stood at the end. I’m not sure why, but I was fascinated by its rustic beauty.
So this photo was the inspiration for painting in which I used bright primary colours to add some life and energy to a place that was actually quiet and tranquil. That is the beauty of modern abstract art you can change the story and energy. With a yellow boardwalk, red lamp post and blue waters and grey mountains this trendy painting speaks fun and vibrancy.
