'Blue and Brown Composition’ is executed in fast drying alkyd oil paint which Canney started to use in 1981 to give greater precision of line and clarity of colour than had been possible in his earlier works. As Robert Miller wrote in his introduction to the catalogue for a posthumous Fine Art Society exhibition of Canney’s work in 2007, it is a paint type “which would transform the variety and appearance of his pictures. His discovery and experimentation with alkyd allowed his vision and thoughts to come to fruition in a burst of creativity… Alkyd, or alkyd oil paint, contains a resin which means that the medium dries quickly, or more accurately ‘sets’ or hardens. This happens in a matter of hours and allows blocks of colour to be laid down adjacent to each other without any danger of ‘run’ or mixing”..
