Christs Words in Red 2
Oil on Canvas
This is a larger version of a picture that I painted some time ago. I painted both of these loosely. I have simplified the subject matter and relied solely on the large abstract shapes to carry the composition.
When I did the set up I chose these two books for their colour. It was only when I got underway with the painting that I realised that the maroon book was a version of the Bible. In gold lettering on the spine it reads ‘Christs Words in Red’
