I've chosen Patrick Heron as the subject for my complementary colours. One of Heron's key interests was colour, 'colour is both the subject and the means; the form and the content and the meaning.' Heron's paintings are made up of sometimes abstract shapes and forms which float or group together, surrounded by colour, his compositions sometimes these forms leaving a large amount of flat, block colour. I thought Heron would also be an interesting artist to chose or this brief because of his use of composition, the shapes which Heron uses can be used to balance the composition and keep the eye within the canvas.
