...this could be Gort contemplating how to fix the gift that Klaatu was about to give to the POTUS after he was shot at by one of those pesky nervous soldiers in the Day the Earth Stood Still Good use of a Theremin as well. But no this another acrylic on board but looking at Still Life in this 'Acrylic on board' style I'm working with at the moment. So rather than being pure abstract there is an element of looking or thinking about the subject matter. Now I'm working on 60 x 40 boards, one day when I'm a grown up painter I'll get something bigger to splash the paint onto.
For a long time that this image was developing, it only had the figurative outline on the right and basically a shemozzle of confusion to the left, so having no fear and my inner critic in the bin I covered the whole image in black paint and looked and started again...so really I'm just dealing in destructive layers, a bit like the early days of mashing Jpegs in Photoshop 4 a few decades ago
Out with the electric sander(!!!!!), indeed yes just to cut back into the paint and start again. Now what comes to mind, as it's film connection day is one that should be watched through your fingers is David Cronenberg's Dead Ringers with Jeremy Irons as the twin Gynaecologists..it doesn't end well...spoiler alert...and finally for this week.
So this was always going to be about a food/table based still life again the bottle shape on the right hand side was there from the beginning with the left hand side taking a while to develop...I'm thinking Soup de Poisson and baguettes and probably the café where Amelie works, definitely a go to film on those Grim wet Sundays which are lining up to distribute their meteorological joy. So there we go, 3 this week with an image of Turnberry Beach on the go and another set of boards to create some mayhem on. Thanks for dropping by, some Photography up next.
In these dark times let this be your fireside cup of cocoa with added digestive biscuits. It may skirt the edges of real art but I'll get there but who knows when???? Art from the edge of the Galloway Forest in downtown Ayrshire.
