This work started out as part of a series of paintings looking at expression.  The original idea was to have a very dark background in the same style as some other paintings I had recenty done but as the painting evolved and took on a life of its own I felt that it needed a stronger colour.  I was inspired by "Girl from Tate" by Simon Davis and went for a bright blue, this gave me freedom to play with colours and lighting and totally changed the direction of the painitng..

This is a painting of my husband. After completing a self portrait using a strong blue I wanted to further explore the use of strong colours, I chose yellow as this is the colour I most strongle asssociate with him. This is part of a series of work looking at the use of background colour within the skin tone and lighting.
