Colour Field

"What sets the best Color Field paintings apart [from Abstract Expressionism ] is the extraordinary economy of means with which they manage not only to engage our feelings but also to ravish the eye. At times, it can seem as if the artist's goal was to see how stripped-down a picture could be before it ceased to be interesting to look at."

- Karen Wilkin

Painterly, I can see this created with my watercolours on a sensuous soft paper, the deep Prussian Blue, wet on wet technique... Now I wonder if I can do it again.
