All the new apartments in New York city have one thing in common , clean lines. I decided to do a painting of a wall in our old house in Marrakech.A simple realistic picture of light on a white plaster wall. A 500 year old mud brick riad has no straight walls or square corners. I thought this would be an easy painting but…….
|the first attempt was a disaster – It looked like cheap wall paper in an Earls Court bedsit|
|this time I used a trowel to apply the paint|
|it was beginning to look like the real thing, sort of real abstract|
|Add a couple of lines for cracks and it looked even better|
|some shadows and it was finished “Marrakech shadow wall ” on paper|
|another real abstract on paper “64-11”
“I don’t know why I never painted an abstract painting . It’s so easy” Andy Warhol
