All things new
This is quite unusual even by my standards! In this red and silver abstract painting I have been perfecting a new series of blending techniques. The most noticeable by-product of this is the appearance of rivers and flows that meander throughout the entire painting.
In many ways this piece of red and silver art feels like it could be a snapshot from Mars or an image from the Hubble Space telescope.
The colours are slightly muted over some of my more mainstream works but this is entirely deliberate because of the inclusion of silver.
Pushing some boundaries
What I was trying to achieve here was the creation of a slight haze across the painting. Silver is great for doing this, especially when you thin it down. It’s dusky metallic properties have a light reflecting sheen that creates the illusion of mist or haze.
In order to let the other colours fall in to this realm I had to use some unusual thinning compounds that effectively suck out the pigment – resulting in a less dense and more even flowing paint.
And this is how I formed all these spectacular rivers and flows. When the paint flows more you get to do some very unusual things with it. I really am at the limits of what the paint will do right now. There are some incredibly complex paint structures in here.
