PC#9 – reworking

DSC_0003

Covered it entirely with a stone-like hue so that the thickened portions stand out from the background. It is lit with artificial light from above and natural from below.

This is what it initially looked like:

Particle Collision #8 – Quaver (done]

DSC_0002

Calling this one done. Actually quite like the final bit of work on this. The musical symbol is a ‘quaver’, or one with a single flag on the stem. Pretty vibrant effect, don’t you agree?

PC#8 – Finding a Note

DSC_0002

The painting has ‘softened’ quite a bit; in fact, I think a tad too much. It needs more detail in the background and the ‘note symbol’ I found within the pattern could use strengthening. So… we’ll see where this goes.

It certainly looks better than the way it used to:

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.
