Mark’s recent work has developed to the edge of abstraction with an emphasis on color exploration. These colorful landscape paintings ask viewers to explore visually different emotions and meanings. Richards refers to his paintings as "Color Season's". These ephemeral images lend themselves to active brush work, expressing the decisiveness and authority of touch. This technique suits the temporary nature of the motifs presented from nature with long, freely applied sweeps of thick paint coursing across each canvas; colors surging forward and back.
