still life; three versions

Three versions of the same still life, painted earlier today using a limited palette of acrylic paints on paper. Its may be obvious from the differences between the three paintings that what was  interesting to me was, rather than trying to reproduce on paper, the objects in a realistic three dimensional space, was instead simply the paint as colour and as a material substance, the shapes of the bottle and the fruit, and the plate. In that way these three are I think consistent with other paintings I’ve been making recently, which objectively, may appear more abstract.

Abstract studies

A couple of abstract studies, although I don’t consider them abstract in the sense they are about no more paint on a flat support. As ever the rhythm and gestural sweep of the human figure (in this case two) provide the starting point.
