Art by Neil Blake
I started painting this one a few weeks ago because every time I had my paint brush in my hand, I kept coming up short on what I was actually trying to paint.
My biggest mistake was to no start with a background, and since I don’t really like what I ended up with, maybe I just Gesso over what i’ve got and just start over...
The main reason I want to start over is because at the end of the day, I wouldn’t know how much to ask for it.
I had started this painting about a year ago, but didn't quite know how to get the splashes of colour I was looking for. Then, at last weeks Pancakes and Booze Festival, one of the other artists and I started talking about our creative processes and some of the methods, tools and mediums we use. It was here that she gave me ideas and suggestions to try out. My next post here will have a photo and description of my first one called "Impending Incursion". After I had tried using it once, I was convinced it was exactly what I had been looking for and would allow me to create exactly what I was hoping for.
This was inspired by my life. How everything was so organized, planned. I felt great, as straight an narrow, all I had to do was follow the simple, straight path I had laid our for myself as far out as I could. So, all those straight, crisp, parallel, black and white lines along a straight fairly predictable path was suddenly flooded by an immense flow of chaos (bright colours) where i had so little control other than what colours, medium, and how I would pour it onto the canvas.
It would seem that preparing and cleaning up my studio yesterday would be a great spark to get me restarted down my painting path through life.
I tried something new yesterday which allowed me to start and finish a painting in the same day. This one was inspired by a good friend, MZ.
