A series of colourful acrylic abstract swirls - similar to the effect of oil on water. Quite large canvases, technical skill required to produce them, artistry is in the choice of colour and composition. I had a close look and seemed to see that many swirls and lines had been enhanced with a brush and paint. I enjoyed the exhibition, but I can't see any depth in any of the abstracts I've ever seen - although I do have a book of small abstracts in which each image quickly resolves into an optical illusion of three dimensions, so I know it can be done.

I noticed at the harbour gallery exhibition that another artist - who is a master with pastels - is now doing something similar, but on a smaller scale.
