‘Orange Sky’ by Louisa Corr, 2006

This is a large, bold and organically acrylic painting. Orange sky was inspired by the new sky scrapers being built around me the corniche during my time living in Doha, Qatar. They particularly interested me because so many magnificent buildings were being built but they had no one to move into them or work in them, they were all empty. I have focused this piece on the surface playing with colour, light and vibrancy but I made the informed decision to leave out detail and substance.
