My latest piece is a celestial depiction of a star collapsing into a black hole. The star is made of reams of silver and gold metallic paint. I used blending and pouring techniques to combine the dark and light areas.
The above shot was taken as the first layer of the piece dried. You can see the reflection of my light in the surface of the poured blue acrylic.
The endless abyss of blue holds a dark depth at its heart, and you can almost see the ghost-like human face that sits in the background like an echo.
Thank you all for your comments, and as always, thank you for visiting.
I have been practicing new techniques with my abstract art. Swirls, clouds, and other effects are what I have been trying to achieve, and as seen above, my pursuits have been pretty good.
This piece is different because not only have I tried to communicate familiar shapes, but I have experimented with the shape and dimensions of the canvas. (Notice that the top right corner is irregular, and creates an inclined shape.)
I still try to focus on effective colour composition- as this is the reason why I started painting in the first place. Grey, blue and gold are the colours I am loving right now; however, I am noticing that dark violet tones are creeping in to my work (seen here).
