I found an old printout of a sketch I did at college with a computer analysis of the colours used in it, using a programme I do not have unfortunately.

This seemed to tune in with a recent tiny painting.


Lawrence Ferlinghetti’s book of poems How to Paint Sunlight has this:

“I asked a hundred painters and a hundred poets

how to paint sunlight

on the face of life

Their answers were ambiguous and ingenuous

as if they were all guarding trade secrets

Whereas it seems to me

all you have to do

is conceive of the whole world

and all humanity

as a kind of art work

a site-specific art work

an art project of the god of light

the whole earth and all that’s in it

to be painted with light”
