Homage to Franz Kline

Just thought I would post this quick!! I painted this piece during my PGCE course in a painting workshop which we could potentially teach to KS5 students. I had looked at the work of Franz Kline, a key component of the Abstract Expressionist movement in America and a personal favourite of mine. His work is highly influenced by architectural and industrial icons prominent in New York around the 1940/50's. I painted this piece with a household paintbrush and it was very freeing to work on such a large scale.
