Yippe de doo dah! Finito!.. And even if I do say so myself, am liking this one a lot.
I call ‘Jondalar’ my Eureka moment. I have been pondering for some time on how to put ideas together in one cohesive story , and in this painting the way has cleared to rest and perfect every element before moving on to the next stage in the development of the bigger picture.
And so now all that’s left to do is to finish off the last painting in the series… or at least that’s what I was thinking until I had another look at number 8 in the series. Must admit it annoys me considerably, so, a rehash is in order. Am so very much liking the bronzed figures in ‘Jondalar’ that I thought I might try it out on the rehash, in fact have started. (Photo pretty bad, but hey,, at least the difference is clear.)
Am kind of figuring that the warmth of the bronze against the cool of the blue/greens/yellow will pull out the figures and create depth, and oh.. an opportunity to correct the anatomical mistakes. Think while I am at it, will accentuate the random abstract features as well. Starting to get quite excited about this,,, looking forward to seeing it finished.
Had a small discussion with my tutor Stephen Buntrock yesterday which gave me an idea for future paintings. Am thinking to make the figures more a part of the background rather then stand alone separate from the background if that makes any sense.
