Abstract Texture Canvas

Post by Lorraine on Thu 19 Jul 2012 - 15:49

Not sure what happened. Could have sworn I posted this earlier??? Anyway, textures include eggshells, gesso, tyvek, polyfilla, repair tissue and various meshes. I've painted over part of it as I didn't like it, still not sure either. I do though, quite like the bottom right hand corner, lol.

Think I know what you mean about not being sure, Lorraine, but I'm not sure either. Could it be that the three textures from bottom right upwards seem almost to be in a line and the eye is drawn to them? Or the top left-hand quarter - as it looks on here - is overall darker than the rest so the differing shades don't show up like they do elsewhere? I hope you don't mind me commenting.

You could probably chuck some more colour and textures at it.

i love the whole of the bottom half of it but the top looks a little iffy , dont know what it is about it but i think its cos the different textures have no way of making connection with the next one whereas the bottom ones do connect or blend in with one another

I just love it .... wait till Mia sees it - she will rave about it, I know! Wonder how she got on this week? It's the first time in years that we have had absolutely no contact for a whole week and I have missed her very badly!

I think it doesn't flow either. I like the bottom but the top is missing something. Hmmmm, will have to see.

Glad you like it though Patty, lol.

Love the bottom section. The top looks like its lacking a combination colour or maybe a very soft net over a small area or dyed cotton lace to bring in the cream/yellow hues similar to the base.
Have you thought of adding any delicate text or soft thin straight paint lines near the top textured area in a colour used on the base ? This might help tie everything in together .

I like it, a lot, but agree needs a certain something. Something to make a visual triangle perhaps?

Is it finished Lorraine ? I think it needs a focal point.

I like it, but I think the top looks heavier (colour and texture), what does it look like 'upside down'?

That's an interesting thought, Karelyn.

Not a lot better. I tried it landscape too but it still didn't flow.

Ooooh, who's been cloning then? lol.

That looks better doesn't it. That's where I've added more gesso and a bit on the right hand side too. Hopefully it'll look something like that when I've finished. Mr Green

lol nothing so sophisticated; cutting and pasting.
It'll look much better than that when you've played again.

Yes - that's definitely more together, Lorraine. The eye isn't drawn to a particular bit that seems to take precedence over the others, like it did before. Really zings now.

I love the colours, the texture isn't for me unless there's a picture within it, or something larger to focus on but the colours are amazing
