Wild is the Wind was a key painting from my 2021 portfolio of paintings. It was where I found my creative flow again after a period of feeling a bit stuck in my studio. Working with purple was new for me and I found the challenge of painting my way through its many tonalities refreshing.
Here, I have mixed charcoal with oil paint which is a consistent painting technique I use because the wetness of oil paint with the dryness of charcoal adds weight and depth to the composition. Lemon yellow oil pastel playfully reflects the rock formation shape and lime green fans across areas to add a colour pop. I often listen to Nina Simone in my studio and the title of this painting is taken from her song Wild is the Wind Love me, love me, love me, say you do, Let me fly away with you, For my love is like the wind, And wild is the wind.
