I have equipped myself with a 90cm diameter canvas, and a 2 inch brush. Let the fun begin;
This painting is meant to based on a palette similar to Untitled #7, however, at the moment the painting has become very dark. Interestingly, as the outer lighting got lighter, the paint I began to use was darker.
This is a strange piece to create, because instead of manifesting a form for my emotions, I am essentially copying a painting right in front of me. So now I have reached a point of density within the work, I am going to work into it with a little more attention than I have been paying it previously.
My favourite parts so far are the little ‘sun spots’ that arise within the layers of colour;
At the moment, it is difficult to discern whether or not bigger is actually better. I just wanted to give myself an opportunity to move in a different way in order to create the painting, as well as create a different final impact. I think the scale has the potential to create an intensity between painting and viewer, I am not sure if I can fulfill that just yet.
