Unexpected grid

A painterly work in progress with a grid structure. Gary Peters.

The grid like form was quite unexpected. It started as a group of vertical stripes, and not working, they quickly turned into a grid. I can easily imagine using this form in other works, though only time will tell.

The cyan blue is just the colour I was aiming for while the orange triangle (which feels more congruent in the photo than it does in the flesh) isn’t quite working for me. It may need to become heavier and dirtier with less contrast, or perhaps be erased all together.

For now it’s time to sit and look at the work a little longer, knowing it still has a way to go, before turning it to the wall for a few days so I can return with fresh eyes.
