This is a new painting done in the studio. This is a painting that was commissioned to be a nature influenced abstract. The painting took over and it is a little more representational than I intended. I have posted the progression of the work. I thought it might be interesting to review my process on this. The element I wanted to focus on was composition. I felt it were important to have a play between 2d and 3d space. Like many of my works I started out with line and movement inspired by music.
At this early point I was still working the painting while flipping it vertical and horizontal. Much of the composition was determined by looking at it backwards in a mirror.
At this point I had chosen a format to work in. Line being equal to shape and color. The color was again dictated the music.
This is the final painting. I am disappointed in the photo. I don't think you can capture the layers of paint and texture. I will take a quality photo for the gallery page in my site (www.myritual.com).
