Dragon Gate complete


A few things other than art have kept me busy this week, but I have managed to finish Dragon Gate. Its that horrible time of year for me when I go to work in the near dark and come home in darkness, so everything needs to be photographed under artificial light.  While my lighting is good now, it still doesn't compare to daylight I don't believe, so I'll take a couple of images tomorrow.

I have a few ideas going through my head for other pieces.   A had bought the last few canvas panels in this size (15 x 30) at an art supply store that was closing, and they had sat for in the studio for awhile until the jellyfish needed something that size, now this.  I think I have a couple of panels left, so there may be a mini series involving this technique of tissue and mixed media.

I seem to intersperse loose painting with tight controlled pieces.  I have no idea why I flip back and forth, but seem to be able to do so without problems.  There's something about each extreme that appeals to me.

I like this piece quite a lot Jeanette. It's the looseness and the colour range that I find appealing. Lately I have a strong attraction to orange and blue.

Margaret, those complementary colours always work so beautifully together, such impact.

I've quite enjoyed creating this piece and working more loosely. Its quite freeing.

Thanks BrandNewStudio.
