Chromatic Grey Skies by Alex Mcintyre. I have an obsession with grey skies in winter and early spring. Every year I try to capture the sense of exhilaration and freshness I feel when out running with these skies. They seem full of wild possibilities. They play games with the wind and race and break apart and glow. Completed in February 2020, Chromatic Grey Skies, is expansive with wildness and wonder. The painting captures the bleached wild skies of late winter, whilst the earth is beginning to think about spring. It feels like a breath of fresh air, of wind and soft colours. The painted surface is both engraved or carved and raised in relief, giving it a three dimensional feel.
