SEMI-ABSTRACT WIP


Although this may appear to be a traditional still life drawing, it’s not.

A group or recognisable objects can be seen, but they will be joined by shapes that are derived from within the featured objects.

The colour palette will grow as I introduce new colours to give the objects more definition.

This drawing is a marriage of pattern and shape, in 3D.

I will try to develop this drawing further in the week ahead.

    I like that and thank you for the inspiring text. What we see in the picture is the invitation to check our daily path. That’s always beneficial. I think that traditional still life drawings always obtain their true meaning in portraying not the things we see in the picture but us ourselves. For example, if you look at http://candleday.wordpress.com/2011/05/05/visual-aids-to-morality/, I think the picture of the flowers wouldn’t delude you – wouldn’t shadow the true message of the artwork that talk about the spiritual healing through the recognition of self in others.

      If all of our artwork comes from within ourselves (and it should, if it is to be as art should), then each time we paint we reveal a little more of ourselves to the outside world.
      Thank you for your comments, Tomas.

    I don’t know whether to comment on the beautiful start to another great painting, or to the comments. They’re all inspiring!! Lol.
    I like this one Richard. I think it has an aboriginal feel to it. Correct me if I am wrong.

      Hi April, There’s no deliberate attempt to link this drawing to Aboriginal art. It’s probably the colours and shapes that you recognise. The small shapes will become 3D pebbles, not dots. I am trying to use the local colours, but in a slightly ‘mosaic’ way.
