Sinuous Wave

This is a smaller abstract than I've done recently - 8 x 10 inches on canvas board. The background is a mixture of raw umber and cadmium yellow and the lines are done in vermilion. This was based on a doodle that I did in a boring meeting - there's an hour and a half of my life that I won't get back!

C&C welcome.

Re: Sinuous Wave

It is rather nice, so actually the hour and a half was well spent designing this, even though you may not have realized it at the time. I especially like the flow of the background. I like the red of the line, but I am finding I like when brush strokes are more loose and not so orderly as the line in your painting. But, having said that, I couldn't do a work this good, so my hat is off to you. By the way, the red circle was essential to making this painting work, so good one there.

Re: Sinuous Wave

Thanks very much for the positive response. I always try to keep the brushstrokes showing in all my paintings as I like to show movement. I enjoyed doing the doodle and the painting so you're right to say that the time wasn't wasted, although there were moments when I thought that I was going to lose the will to live!!!

Re: Sinuous Wave

Yes I always doodle in meetings - and I go to far too many - it's the only way to stay sane. Thanks for the positive responses!
