Exploring, pushing the latest set of four high key paintings, playing with whites over dark glowing reds, and sanding, and pushing, and sanding… to be continued 😉
Clarifying, editing, checking values, checking shapes, colors, marks and pops of saturation. This painting has gone through some total transformations, it really is strange, I started a series of 7 landscapes a while ago, but as I’ve been working with glazing and sanding and glazing again to get depths and light into my work, it just said stop! I believe working with landscapes, even if abstracted, makes me very restrained and tensed in my approach, at least in the end it does. So this series will be high key and abstract instead!Here is the first one, still under progress but getting pretty close to finished I believe. All comments are very appreciated, may I ask for your first impression? Title so far: “HAVING A BALL”
GOING HIGH KEY AND GOING ABSTRACT, WHICH I HAVE BEEN MISSING A LOT
Exploring, I mean really exploring this time. I decided in a blink of a second that I wanted to go high key, it has been many mid-tone and darker landscapes lately, I wanted to go light and I wanted to go abstract! So, this is today’s total transformation of yesterday’s exploration. Also attaching some closeups. I feel much better now doing something drastic, comments are much appreciated
Still playing on the hollow door projects, these pieces are starting to communicate with me now, I like the energy, the colors which are almost hidden, the circular movements. Next step will be a little more water-soluble crayons before I proceed in cw and oils.
