This energetic watercolour and ink on paper is a fine example of a work by Jean Paul Riopelle in this medium. Half drawing, half painting, it is effortlessly composed, and shows us that Riopelle was as much a virtuoso with an ink pen as he was with a paintbrush. Riopelle's working methods were instinctive. His innate sense of colour balance and his deep understanding of the importance of composition coalesced to build a strong framework on which to hang the details. Here we have tones of yellow and red - in various levels of saturation – along with black ink and the white of the paper support. It is a simple combination, lyrically deployed in a pleasing and evocative manner. There is a sense of organic life here, as well as a delightful feeling of frenzied yet purposeful activity. Our natural instinct is to compare it to something tangible - flowers, sailboats, insects, perhaps - but its success lies in the fact that it is so skilfully and effortlessly executed.
