Pansy Pleasures - continued
8x6' oil on canvas Sold..
What's not to like about pansies?
They are sturdy, colorful and
have a happy face. Best of all
they provide visual pleasure
throughout the winter months.
One of the advantages I find by
using the Fracturing technique
is the ability to suggest something by color,
without rendering it perfectly.
In this case, I first painted the focal point
with the correct form of a pansy.
Once this had been established I could
then make any shape, and as
long as I repeated a color or used
the very distinctive yellow center,
it would read as a pansy.
Here is a close up to show you how abstract
the one above and next to the focal pansy is.
The mind makes it a pansy
because it is next to a pansy of
the same color.
Also the little touch of a yellow center
is code for pansy.
I am experimenting with painting the pansies
in watercolor on Yupo and regular paper. FUN.
but hard to get what I want.
This is a repeat of a post I did back
a couple of years ago. I am busy wrapping up
the classes for the year, One more week!
