I like it, the colours are spot on, not grungy or muddy but dark and rich. The feeling is rather lonely and melancholic. What blue did you use Simon?
Thanks Sheila, glad you like it, cerulean blue, I find dark metalic colours kindof wholesome, but some people may consider then cold.
Chrome green is a cracker. Just got a new tube.
Chrome Green, would that be in acrylics or water sol oils daler/windsor?
Chromium oxide green, Winsor & Newton acrylic. I love the oxides - violet iron oxide (more like a deep red); yellow iron oxide (like yellow ochre but heavier, not deeper). Have been using Prussian blue and Indanthrene blue. To be honest, not tried the Chromium oxide green yet but when I saw the word "oxide" I had to get it. I find these heavier, more saturated colours are better for acrylics which can get a washed out look if you're not careful.
I like it too, nice colors and interesting subject matter
This is dark, but very poetic. I like it!
Thanks Lorena, comment appreciated.
Thanks Leslie, glad you think its poetic, I was trying to allude to the forms and light obliquely, so I guess that what makes it poetic. Quite why I wish to be oblique is not clear, I remember reading something about a story from the point of view of a horse, with the critic concluding, that the "slowness of perception " is the main poetic content of the work, so if you are oblique, you are poetic see. http://www.rlwclarke.net/Courses/LITS3304/2009-2010/03AShklovskyArtasTechnique.pdf
Gloom schmoom - I like it, Simon!
love the gloom!
Poetry in paint!
Thanks Linny, yes I see the colour black as kind of a default state, if theres no events then, well its a non colour, must be black.
Thanks william, ;ove your recent attic painting.
Thanks Stephen, comment appreciated, I suppose it is poetry in that the paint strokes themselves seem to allude to something beyond what they are representing....something like that.
