I really dig the first one, you picked a very difficult sized canvas to work with, but you composed it really well, I like the use of colour too, thats my favorite. the second one had some nice colour too, I like the purple used instead of black to highlight shadows. what does this one mean? the third, I like the fractals** but it is a little bit busy for my liking, my eyes dont know where to go, the yellow almost flushed out all the hard work you did with the spheres. over all you are freaking brave using so many vibrant colours but you executed it really well.
is the order you posted them the same order you painted them in?

Wow those are great OP! Thanks so much for posting those! How big were the canvases you used? I only have pastels at the moment, but I'm trying to make it work
Any particular reason as to why you prefer acrylic?

hey thanks for checking them out
the first one is the most recent i've done. and yeah the canvas was a hard one to work with, I was originally going to use 2 of that size and make a duo-peice but it didnt happen lol.
yeah the last one messes with my brain as well lol. I enjoy that though, its how i felt when I painted it. overwhelmed I guess you could say.
I don't have initial meanings for my paintings, I do when I draw, but painting for me is different. I usually get a blank canvas, and just start going to town on it with no preconceptions of what may happen. the painting evolves on its own.
And I always use as many colours as possible, ive just always done that, I enjoy the black and white of sketching, but when I paint I just need to use as many non complimentary, ridiculously bright colours as I can lol
