Re: Blue minimalistic series continues #2

Brian, I like the addition of red (Alizarin crimson?) to bring relief from the blue. Think the split in the middle with the vertical flow reminds me of the edge view of the edge of the world. Nice!

Brian, I like the idea but honestly this is not one of my favourites of yours.... but you know I'm a big fan of your work! Incidentally I looked on your website the other day and where are all those incredible/amazing seascape paintings that you used to post on the Acrylic forum?

As someone who is struggling to go bigger, I find this piece inspiring. I like the simplicity of the design, and especially like the vertical direction shift in the bottom part.
