Camera painting: ‘The past revealed’

This image is derived from a photograph of part of the Boscawen Stone Circle in Cornwall.  It seems incredible to think that these stones were paced in situ in Neolithic times  –  that is, between two and four thousand years BCE.

Size matters: impact is important (5)

A visual image, whether picture or graphic design, needs ‘breathing space’ in order to communicate fully with the viewer. It needs to be exhibited as created by the artist. Reproductions (eg. in books or online) can, at best, provide a useful introduction.

The purpose of this series is to convey something of the intended size of the artworks. The images used are from previous posts on this site. Most are abstracts influenced by post abstract expressionism artists. In this case the abstract under discussion is titled ‘The Red City’

Canna variations (6)

The veins in the leaves of a canna plant form long smooth curves reminiscent of the contours of downland scenery. In this series the veins have provided both a starting point and a as a common theme. but varied palettes have been used to create a range of interpretations
