I was playing about with some paint the other day and thought I would do a tonal piece with some interesting perspective incorporated.
As I’d recently been watching some old DVD’s of the 70s series The Onedin Line, and was inspired by the idea of a ship’s cabin undergoing a storm on the high seas – the inside of the cabin bobbing up and down and showing different perspectives. ”Tilt’ incorporates non representational images – but don’t let that stop you spotting any….
For added effect I turned the actual image 180 degrees, just to give it even more vistas! Materials used ; Acrylic on Daler board.
Here’s another little experiment with perspective. This piece is from a small journal of mine. It doesn’t really become obvious why the piece is called ‘Threeway’ as I have actually shown four perspectives. ‘Threeway’ is just a play on the word ‘Freeway’…nothing esoteric about that. However the eroded corridors and isolation which this space conveys and the colours I have used, is clear – no matter which way it is viewed….sometimes there just is no escape.
I do lots of small experiments like these and have completed quite a few series of experimental works, which I shall put on here every so often.
‘Threeway’ was made with felt tip pens and a wet paintbrush on paper. You can get some wonderful effects with this method – a kind of muted watercolour. But you have to work fast, and you should always use an old paintbrush because somehow or other, this method just erodes the bristles.
And the last one:-
The next personal art will be an explaination of the ‘Echostains ‘ concept and how it came about.
