I have been looking at the kaleidoscope photographs and loving the colours. I love to see things in paint though, because I can imagine how the paint will blend nicely and make the lovely subtle colour gradations. And I imagine what it will feel like with brush-in-hand as I do the blending. What a happy thought indeed. Anyway, here is a work in progress.
I rather like how it’s come out, but I would like to add some other elements outside the canvas. So it’s somewhere between installation and painting on canvas. I’m thinking about making a cardboard pyramid, painted with the same pattern to mount on the wall above.
Perhaps not unlike what I’ve dodge’d-up here in photoshop…
I’ll have to do it to find out. Hmmm, oil sketch paper or canvas boards, do you think…?
