PC#8 remake – varying lines of colour

DSC_0001

Before I do any more with the background, I think it’s time to establish a series of colours for the tracks themselves. Once they’re in, maybe I’ll have a better idea on what to do with the open spaces that remain.

I already like the painting a lot more.

Particle Collision #8 – remake

DSC_0030

I’m unhappy with how this piece compares to the rest in the series and I’m going to attempt to improve it somehow. For a beginning, it’s too simplistic, stark and cold, so my first instinct is to do some sanding to shave a bit off the thick coat of paint. From that point on, I have no idea where it will go other than to softer, warmer colours.

Calling this one done. I think the painting fits its new name nicely and will be auctioned off at the Gallery96 VineArt exhibition November 8. Hopefully someone would enjoy having such a delicious piece hanging in their kitchen.

Changed the colour scheme entirely and thinking about sanding the surface flat as well. Not sure yet, but it certainly is an improvement over the coldness of the previous piece:
