Peripheral eclipse touching, 2016
Peripheral eclipse touching belongs to a series of large-scale watercolours that explore the effects of transparency and overlapping combinations of colours. Three transparent layers of pigment – two yellow and one blue – cover the paper evenly, with the exception of a large circle left unpainted at the centre of each layer of colour. These large circular voids are slightly offset from one another, a displacement that produces delicately touching arcs of varying hues where different layers overlap or where a single layer displays its colour alone. The arcs of vivid colour distinguish the circular areas from the softly glowing background tone, which is composed of all three colours.
