Composition number 2

Painting, July 2015, 81×64×2 cm

Description of the artwork «Composition number 2»

canvas / oil, 2015, Cannes

I invested in the GRAY GOAT, the azure sky-sea-beach-surf, seen for 26 months, the traction and bomb of exalted labor accumulated over my life, and it turned out. He made me nervous, I did not believe in the course of work that it would turn out at all, it was exciting.

Painted with cheap Daler Rowney oils on crappy student grade cotton poorly stretched, bought at the "Cultura" school and leisure goods megastore in Mandelieu, French Riviera; the place is NOT Cannes, mind it, it just happens to be the nearest art supplies store.

Dawn inside lived me, it turns out.
I consulted with my grandson about the color scheme of the lower third of the dark, but did it differently, it came in the process itself.

But I copied the gray on the attached 4 times, looked for the color of “that gray goat that my grandmother had” and found ... on the vertical pylons of paint and the frame of the ceiling of my living room in Cannes - it was cold, not warm, and that was as it turned out, tsimes. Further it was easier: the grandson's sharp eye with exclamations of "No!" "wrong!" brought me to the required shade of the ceiling with high accuracy, did not let me lie.

Apart from gray, I also ruled all colors three times, but when I went first from blue to light-azure and covered almost half of a virgin white canvas, each color began to demand itself in the shade it needed and the logic built itself up.
