Bold compositions of hard-edges shapes of a single hue, produced by methods that were partly improvisational, with coloured tapes applied with rigorous discipline, to produce a sometimes optical effect.
Large fields of a single colour with narrow, sometimes scarcely visible, margins of other colours intended optically to modify the effect, and even the emotional impact, of the central, dominant, and usually ravishingly beautiful hue.
Plumb allowed chance to dominate this series, randomly selecting his colours and the order in which they were arranged on forms like ladders distributed at various angles across the canvas.
These compositions, in which organic forms and complex curving lines derived from direct observation of the stream at the bottom of his garden in Shepperton, came to dominate this series and allowed Plumb to exploit his exquisite colour sense.
