"Where did you gain your understanding of colour? This something I struggle with all the time, and it shows in your work that you really know what you are doing with it".
This was from someone who works with glass, as I do sometimes, rather than from someone who is learning to paint.
It fascinated me to get the question, because it made me realise how much I take my understanding of colour for granted, and how much my training as a painter is helping me in my alternative pursuits.
Here is my latest piece of glass. At the moment, it is just a fused flat piece.....I am considering whether it will be a bowl in due course, or if it will stay a flat circle and will be displayed on a stand as a work of art, which I feel it is. It reminds me of Klimt, or anyway I like to feel it does. ( Please ignore the horizontal strips in the blue...that is a reflection of the kiln elements in the lid, while the piece is sitting in the kiln!)
