Yesterday’s image drew a response from Gabriela who saw ‘trees’ straight away. I did too, but as I responded, what would you see if you turned the image upside down?
When we look at any painting we immediately try and understand what it is about. We invariably look for images or objects that we know. The more information, the more chances we have of ‘making sense’ of the painting.
Today’s image is not about anything known, it’s about exploring the technique of painting using small pieces of mountboard. Maybe you can ‘see’ something…. a sky?, rain?, hillside?, even a rainbow? What I like about this image is its layers of shapes and the overall dynamic movement within the composition. Its greyscale content is complimented by the introduction of red which works extremely well.
What do you think?
