In My Dreams – Fourth in LD series:24″x22.5″
Hey Girls, continuing on my Landscape of Dreams series, this is the fourth piece in the series.
I’m actually very happy with it. I feel like this series is teaching me a lot. There is more colour, and more depth in this particular work.
Also, I started posing for the new work myself, as its a more personal group of work and speaks to me more clearly – I understand the subject better!
I am planning on doing four more pieces to complete this group. Out of which six will be in the NYC show.
With this work, I started on a black background which I’ve really been wanting to try. It had some challenges – like I really had to push the colours otherwise the painting was looking dead. Also, the painting looks totally different if there is no light on it. So, in other words, the work needs a spotlight.
I still feel like I’m scratching the surface -like there is so much underneath that I need to explore and push out. I think for this reason it helps that i have to continue with the series. Also, I am producing more work, faster, which forces me to go on pure instinct which is great – Then whether or not the work is a “success”, I end up being happy with it as I learned so much in the process!
