This abstract work 'Music and Sound' is composed using bold purples, yellows and blues. Working on canvass thickly with oil colours, Lynne's painting is an attempt to express her deep love of colour and music. This becomes more apparent when you note the way she has captured this scene, painting quickly in thick, gestural layers over a solvent, light cobalt blue ground. She almost plays with the idea of synaesthesia - the subjective sensation of a sense other than the one being stimulated. For example, a sound may evoke sensations of colour to dictate her colour scheme for this work.
