The wispy vertical trail, which is a key to how Innes works, resulted when the orange paint was partially dissolved with turpentine. " It took me a long time to realize that the unpainted areas were the most important. That was where the eye was drawn." Reportedly, the canvases begin entirely covered by a monochrome field, most of which is edited away.
