When I have found the relationship of all the tones the result must be a living harmony of all the tones, a harmony not unlike that of a musical composition.
—Henri Matisse

The Fibonacci sequence is a series of numbers in which each number is the sum of the two that precede it. Starting at 0 and 1, the sequence looks like this: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, and so on forever.

The width of the beams at the base are created using the Fibonacci sequence and the oval and circle are created with sequential pairs of numbers in the sequence.

Where colour and shape are concerned there are two considerations for me the first is the metaphysical component of the experience, because we are all different what inspired or gives added feeling to an encounter depends on our memorized historical experiences. The shapes I utilize in the Opus series come from within me through memory and an intuitive process, they are me, and they are the artist. The second consideration is the problem how to paint the brightness, one colour was no good, no matter how amazing modern pigments it seemed what I required was a graduation of one colour mixed myself and the relationships between all the colours in the image. The following section details the thinking of experts in the field of colour perception and my understanding of colour as I continue to create images through the experience of colour.
