Ballard’s intense use of colour vibrantly illuminates the canvas while his decisive brushstrokes in strong, contrasting hues dominate the canvas. Through his technical abilities with both the paintbrush and palette knife, the artist creates energy within the composition by portraying multiple textures throughout. Form and colour are expressed in a most balanced harmony in his paintings.
During lockdown, the artist has drawn on his own garden for inspiration more than ever. In this short and powerful home video, we can truly appreciate the artist's exceptional skills and mastery of his craft.
