After this one i'm doing now, I want to go gallery size, something much bigger, and possibly use oils or mix with acrylic.
And yes it was a very spontaneous piece. I find its good to plan what your doing but it can also work against you. You try so hard to make it
something and get dissatisfied when you can't produce that, either that or the objects look so placed, it can lack flow sometimes. With this one I
just tried to trust myself, you fear getting carried away in the spontaneousness and think you'll ruin the piece, and if that happens so be it, but
you have to trust that vibe I find. Its expression right, its the same as talking for me, when I don't force what i'm trying to say, it usually
flows out well anyway, so I try to do the same with art. I actually observed a lot how my room mate paints, he does very abstract stuff and just
goes with the flow, I tried to adapt that yet still maintain the attention to detail I like.
I've been experimenting with 3D art but it can be a bit of a headache.
I have one painting on bristol board, then with 4 pieces of clear acrylic plastic separated 1 inch apart in front of it. I learned the plastic was
very hard to paint on for one without mixing it with gesso or something. As well, the painting didn't come out the best, but I can always open it up
fix it. Its encased in a wooden frame that weighs way too much and could also use a better look.
I was thinking of starting to frame my stuff in that glowing neon acrylic plastic. It would look cool in a gallery under a black light or
I like the use of neon / flourescent colour, because it makes it seem like its beyond 3d colour, beyond the colour wheel, like if it were another
dimension and thats what colour was like lol...
Goin' for the ultra psychedelic gallery experience.
I'm working on one right now but its a slow process, its as wide but not as tall. I wanted to experiment with a more panoramic scale.
