I would say most of the main images are planned. And the colors and backgrounds kinda just come into place. Especially on this piece. I just kept adding to it until it felt complete. Not a lot of planning on this one. I kind of paint in two modes, my backgrounds, are a kind of therapy where I just paint and let the colors do there thing, without much thought. Then when I add the main images I start to think about the composition and placement.
That's neat. So its a mixture of spontaneity and planned images. Great combo to have. It's good to be able to feel certain ways with art. Some people just spit out artworks like crazy and you can't feel the emotion within them because it seems the artist didn't bother to add their feelings to it. If that makes sense.
Oh, that sounds lovely. I do that with my mosaic works which most I don't post on here for some reason. It lets me get lost in my work...it is very therapeutic.
That makes sense. So there's order to the madness.
A cool piece, very colourful & eye catching. It's the style I aspire to create in the future. You say "Not sure if its done....", so may I suggest maybe applying a face at the otherside. But if you hadn't mentioned it I would of assumed it was complete, sometimes the hardest part is knowing when to stop.
Thanks for the nice compliment And since I haven't touched it in a few months I would have to say it is done. But I agree about the upper left corner, it's kinda missing something compared to other parts. I never know when to stop, I just know when it's too late, I should have stopped.
Wow! Beautiful work... incredible stencils... great texture too. Much of your work reminds me a lot of Jason Garcia... especially the background patterning and color combos. You seen his stuff? Much love.
Thanks Truce, This is on a 30x24in canvas. Id say I paint every piece a bit diffrent, but this one had a worked background on, then I put the stencils on, then I painted over it again to give it a more cohesive feel trying to tie it all togethor. Thanks for the questions and taking a look
