Turquoise Tango is an abstract work, based on landscape. I went out to paint on a bitterly cold morning in January to the (magenta) running track . I loved the colour of the track and the shapes formed from different angles. In the studio I completed this piece, which is the sister canvas to 'Magenta Mischief' also on site. Working both pieces together and adding the shape of the track to this piece, I felt on completion it had an oriental feel to it , perhaps coming from the subconscious , as I have visited India several times.
