Certainly tension between two or three colours in a painting is what makes the painting vibrant, all contrasts – warm/cool, broad areas against detail, organic against mechanical. And of course, in many of my paintings I am interested in the wild versus the tame, water in nature against water imprisoned ‘civilized’ in a bowl or container.” - T. HopkinsEstimate: $7,000–9,000
