Sailboats in Two Colours (Sold)

I love colour. It seems to have become a trademark of mine. At least I have been told. I decided that I must challenge myself and do a painting where I used the least amount of pigments I dared.
It was painful. It was a scene from Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde as my hands fought to stay away from all those tubes of coloured paints.  

However, I did it.

"With every day, and from both sides of my intelligence, the moral and the intellectual, I thus drew steadily nearer to the truth, by whose partial discovery I have been doomed to such a dreadful shipwreck: that man is not truly one, but truly two."

- Robert Louis Stevenson, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Chapter 10
