Believe it or not, this is just the test spray. it’s not even the final piece!
I’ve been trying to be more planned out with the colors that I have been using in my paintings. Colors have a "feel" to them. a motion that you paint with. I probably won’t be able to explain it adequately with a short instagram post, but there is a frequently to colors when I look at them. Dark colors - blues, purples, dark greens, are sprayed slowly and from a farther distance off the canvas. Brighter colors - yellow, red, orange, are painted much quicker and closer to the canvas. Each painting has a cadence to it. A rhythm.
When I look at a scene i can see the layers of colors. Blues in the background with a slow and low bass sort of tone. Even lower tones of dark purples hidden past that. But then the yellow and whites are high pitched buzzing like a fly. But throughout the scene there is always noise. like interference. Those are the dribbles, splats, and overspray that seep onto the canvas.
But enough of my rambling. here is a painting of Montmartre in Paris. @TheLoriZimmer ate at that restaurant - Le Consulat once. it was cold and we had big winter jackets on, and the place was packed and shoulder to shoulder with people. Halfway through our meal, i looked down and saw a mouse running around. i tried not to give away what I had seen for fear of Lori freaking out even more, and soon the mouse ran under another table. When we told the waitress that a mouse was loose and running around, she just sort of shrugged her shoulders and walked off. I bet that mouse eats good.
