The trouble with me is when I find a new way of creating I tend to stick with it for a time. I have promised myself that this time I will develop this method of work further than I have in the past. We will wait and see if that is true. So yesterday I stuck with the limited palette I have of these new fluid colours I have been trying.
I have limited time to paint while on vacation, it is after all much more important that my wife enjoys this time away from work than me. But I have this idea of at least producing one triptych using this style of creating and this palette of colours. I hope to take it just a bit further and maybe a brighter topic.
The first and smaller of these paintings I showed you last week. The 1812 Overture. This is a larger one based on the first line of Shakespeare play The Tempest where he speaks of the storm and the thunder.
It is darker than the first, not by real intend, but because of mood, I think.
I always like to discuss finished work with a few friends and the general feeling was that they were both interesting. Some liked one some another. The bottom line I feel is they hoped I liked them both because I will probably have to live with them for a while.
So here then is the second of my adventure with this new paint and method. Painted using tinfoil, modelling paste and tissue and fluid acrylic colour.
On reflection and looking at it again I think this could also be viewed this way. What is your opinion? It might then need a new name?
