Both red paintings, acrylic, gloss and oil on canvas. After creating a structured image I wanted to go against the white angular areas with more free associated areas of brushstrokes. Having got old sketchbooks out recently I referred to a number of pencil drawings looking for a sense of movement but trying to achieve a non specificity that was in the mark-making. I had paint already mixed up from the grey painting, some were dark tones, so this decided what I used. I retained some areas by masking but not as many. Just like a memory, with some things fading but important things remaining.
