Orange Untitled


Orange Untitled
Ink, Opaque, Watercolour
1120 x 1120

This is one of only four coloured works produced at the end of 1975 at the same time as Thornley was working on his Alba series . Like them it is full of atmosphere. Here the artist has worked darker linear sections into the predominant orange background to give a sense of contrast. The painting is unusual in that it is surrounded on all sides by a dark structural band which emphasises of the rectangular composition.
