Like many pieces of your work I've seen so far, its interesting how you can lay down a series of random sized brush strokes at different opacities to create a feeling of solid and structure. With this one, from a distance it conjures up for me a side view of a plane fusalage and nose with the propellas just off to the left. I dont know if this was intentional but it's one hell of a technique to create form and very similiar to that light from dark technique. Nice work...loving it...you have certainly become an instant inspiration for my own work. I'll try this technique out...Thank you!
Thanks very much for your kind words! Perception is interesting - how we interpret a series of dark and light areas of color as a form. And when the image is an impression - a sketch - the viewer is able to "complete" the image in their own mind. It's always interesting how different people respond to something - I have my own response too, which reflects my own way of seeing things.
I guess the quick paintings are the counter-point to my 3D work - which by its nature is very defined.
Well... not difficult for some. I wish I could say the same for my own art.
Highly detailed drawings with many layers of brush strokes allows the painter to correct and revise errors and cover over mistakes, but with only a few transparent brush strokes like this every mover of the artist is visible to the viewer, therefore there is less opportunity to correct mistakes.
I agree, quite simple yet it took me no time to figure out what it is and how it works. Thou a name would be better than "it" Maybe you should work on this piece in your free time, we've seen some wonders come out of your head, u never know this one might turn into Star wars 2 or something
