One Hundred Mini Paintings
What?? I hear you say, well yes that’s exactly what I’m up to in between larger products over the next week months.
I’m making these A5 & A4 paintings on canvas for two very important reasons.
So just really discovering what works best in the way I arrange colour on the canvas and what shapes they make to the painting as a whole. It’s very easy to just focus on the detail in my work rather than the work as a whole. After all what’s the first thing some ones going to see – the whole piece, of course!!
It needs to draw you with curiosity to look closer and closer and see all the glorious detail, this sounds completely obvious I know but sometimes taking a step back to really think helps you see the reality the obvious things in life!
I realised after deciding to focus on this way of working back in December that composition of the whole piece was something that was holding me back the most so I needed to something about it and then I just had one of those light bulb over your head moments where I thought yes, just practice on a small scale alot !!!
Affordable Art Project
The other reason is my need to make original art that can be affordable to everyone, I have my thoughts on prints some of these thoughts could be thought to be offensive to other fantastic artists so I don’t really say the out loud to much. Ha ha.
I just feel that the passion you put into what you make should be present through out, I think prints have there place for artists that have become so popular they can’t make affordable originals. Some of these artists add a personal touch and paint over some areas of their prints so that they are still unique which I love.
My point being the reason I love art is to see all the detail, texture, brushstrokes, smell (that may sound a weird one, but i do.)
That’s where I see the magic & love, so thanks for reading this brief description.
Have a great week.
