I’m continuing my imaginary travels, but this renegade slipped out: I hankered after some brash colour; that’s my excuse.
To curb these impulses, and get back to the theme outlined in my earlier blog, about our reactions to unfamiliar and new places, I added dashes of green and, naturally, called it Green Spaces. Tenuous; agreed, but look at the COLOUR.
So on the green theme, this one slipped out by accident. I imagined forests; greened light piercing the dark and glimpses of sky.
By slipping out I mean this is a repurposed old painting. The above started out as a pastoral scene I posted in a 2019 blog.
I brushed and scraped some colours over this painting, mainly to obscure the figures and hide any of the representational and left it overnight. I came back the next morning to start on it, turned it about and decided it didnt need much extra doing to it: so I didnt.
Finally, back to my imagined travel theme. I did this, Strange Town, deliberately and conscientiously following my self imposed brief.
But I must admit I prefer the first two.
