Here's my idea for a themed thread.

Produce some tangible image of an emotion.

...and here's my contribution...

Jealousy

I suppose I could have also tried to paint a 'green eyed monster' :)

(this picture could also belong to the one-hue or the 1-hour projects)

That mixture of line and paint is very effective.

The face and posture say it all. Very nicely done.

Hi Maror,

Very nice effect. To me, the expression on his face is a mix of fear and regret. Like he just broke the principal's window and know he's gonna be found out soon.

If I tried, it would end up as a painting of 'frustration' instead.

Hi Selby,

I think Chaotic is too pretty to be a negative emotion.
It reminds me of chocolate wrappers made into a collage. It's what we did while the rest of the world seemed to be doing scratchback with crayons!

Selby
06-07-2006, 09:31 AM
hehe-thanks AgedP :) -chocolate wrapper collage sounds fun-i was with everyone else doing crayonscratchback but it sounds like i missed another fun one.

i was thinking of it as 'chaotic' as in -when your not unhappy but more overexcited and running in a million directions at once,trying to do a bit of everything and making a mess as you go cause your not sticking to any plan or order...i agree though I may have made it look a bit too appetising

..was thinking of a dear friend when i did it, shes lovely but chaotic to be around and at the end of the day you do feel like you've been trying to keep up with a bunch of high bounce rubber balls dropped from a big hight like in this ad http://www.bravia-advert.com/

06-09-2006, 07:23 PM
<Heavy sigh> There are so many nice emotions. I'm just not feeling them today. I decided to spend a little time and draw an old enemy. Smoldering anger. It sits in the heart blocking the spirits path and blowing out the lamp of the mind. Unchallenged or un slaked it grows into monsters much worse, lasting and destructive. I've found that its energy is well used in physical tasks, like chopping fire wood, or mowing the grass. It soon gives way and the influence of peace surrounds and dissolves it away.

drzeller

Here is envy. A close cousin of greed, envy tries to block the goodwill twins felicitation and cheer. Envy is weak though, and if not joined soon by malice and self pity usually backs down. Even if envy steps forward backed by these and other siblings of ill will, the mother of goodwill, if strong and well fed, can defeat them all. Her name is gratitude.

drzeller- Thanks for your kind words. I find this thread to be one of my favorite notions for community sharing and discussion. I firmly believe that to truly respond to others we must know ourselves. I've noticed things have slowed down a bit over this weekend. I hope this thread picks up speed again as we go into the week. I'm loving all the emotion posts people are sharing. I'll eventually share some of the softer gentler ones.

Selby
06-12-2006, 07:00 PM
Fashmir-I love the way you've shown 'Smouldering Anger' and 'Envy' and I cant wait to see how you show us mother 'Gratitude' ready to beat them back :) wonder if she'll bring her daughters 'harmony' 'peace' and 'grace' with her to watch her work

AgedP -top job on 'frustration and rage'-i had a horrid day before i saw your rendition and felt cheered up when i did imagining you painted that on the wall of the house of the person bugging me...you would never do it,nor would i ... but it was fun to imagine for a minute and I felt so much better afterwards i forgot to be cross

Envy is amazing. The being's face reminds me of the denizens of that town in that episode of The Twilight Zone where "normal" was "strange." Ah yes, here it is, The Eye of the Beholder (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Eye_of_the_Beholder).

This is an old one, line art done in Painter, but it is painted in ArtRage.

And just which emoution is this? It looks like a combination of shocked and repulsed, with maybe a touch of fear.


No... no... I get it... it's someone that just saw the pricing for Photoshop and Painter!

07-06-2006, 09:36 PM
Hey Tatsuyame, I really like that piece. Here are a few suggestions of which emotion it best symbolises:

angst
An acute but unspecific feeling of anxiety; usually reserved for philosophical anxiety about the world or about personal freedom
[WordWeb.info]


I somehow image angst with more red in it though :?

animus
A feeling of ill will arousing active hostility
[WordWeb.info]

belligerence

My family would say you had painted me. That makes me so angry!!

Fashmir
07-12-2006, 07:13 PM
Selby- That does indeed suggest supressed rage but it also has enough humor in it to be really funny. It reminds me of a grade school teacher that we kids used to laugh at when she got angry because she looked so funny. It wasn't her fault she looked hilarious and it wasn't our fault that we couldn't help laughing. She would just get more and more angry. Thanks for the memory... I think. :)

AgedP, despair is stunning. I've actually slowly been working on despair as well, but as usual, I've got the image in my head, but can't get it out. I "despair" of ever completing it. =(

07-25-2006, 10:52 AM
thanks G glad you liked first love...meanwhile with your painting of dispair you should just do it...i often dont have things come out how they are in my head but often if you power on anyway you find something else good comes if not quite what you imagined..besides i hope that by dint of perseverance one day things will come out more like in my head if i just keep on trying

Selby...ever hear of synesthesia?? http://web.mit.edu/synesthesia/www/

Its a sensation where one perception is triggered by another...i.e you see a color when you hear a sound or taste the word "rose" when you hear it.
(I have a mild version of it..when I see a flashing light I hear a tone)
Your painting reminds me of what some synesthetics describe what they "see" when they hear music.

Selby
09-28-2006, 09:59 AM

Enchanter-maybe its a magical one:)

Aged P -wow id have loved to see that.i think your right the best thing about art is the level of control you have to show how a thing affected you and not just how it literally was.
you made me remember a beautiful harp they have at the Questacon museum in Canberra which you play by interupting the light that shines down in beams where the strings would ordinarily be.

Rkngel-thanks:) yes i had heard of it but never known anyone who experienced it.i take it as a big compliment though because ive always thought it must be an amzingly beautiful way to see the world.

D Akey
05-06-2007, 10:34 AM
My take:

Captured a the dualistic perceptions seen by the subject. Has not come to peace with the world. Feels victimized, apprehensive, powerless, vigilant. Someone watching, expecting bad news.

We all have that side of ourselves, no matter how well repressed, I suppose.

I wonder what the figure would look like when looking through the other eye.

What did you have in mind on this one?

Selby
08-02-2007, 06:33 PM
"hows the serenity?"

was feeling stressed out by a woman who abused me in traffic today because i wouldnt move forward into the intersection as it wasnt safe to do so....then i remembered that since i was obeying the rules any upset she was having was her problem not mine and i didnt have to let her get to me...so this is my serenity bubble with her agro failing to stick

Hello Pai :)

The abstract works you have posted here are wonderful!

D Akey
10-08-2007, 05:20 AM
Very nice Pai!

The bottom drawing reminds me of a German Expressionist piece. Heavy and introspective. It's really nice in that evokes a mood. The line in a bit sensitive to the touch and the colors are muted and un-fussed-over, almost like it hurts a little to make the marks.

The abstracts are looking at the integration of detail and gestural. I think it's a good direction to explore. The artistic sensibilities are not yet rooted, but they hold lots of promise. When you do it for a while, I think it will start to pick up some of your usual soft, delicate beauty and flair. Keep exploring. It should start to make sense soon and then you can really start to embrace it more and get it to reflect your natural grace.

Amazing stretches artistically. You're doing great. :D :D :D

Thank you GZ, Rowena and D Akey. :) :) I like doing some abstract after practising or using my brain too much. Maybe after that I can get better in it without even notice it. Another doodling only.

Very clever of you Pai, hiding away here in this that you have made into
a private studio. :D :D :D
These are lovely, but can't imagine why you don't want to post them in the gallery. Well I guess I understand really.
It is a quiet place to paint... :D
I really like the satiny texture of the second one here. Lovely.

Nice work, pai. Almost feels like he's got his work cut out for him -- meaning it will be difficult making progress.

I wish him well. It will make him strong, no doubt. He doesn't look beaten. Just under pressure.

Interesting and inventive use of textures. The surface feels very dimensional.

It is great abstract work. Beautiful colors and graphics. Looks like an interesting world there. :D

Thanks, GZ. :) This was done spontaneously while listen to music "Shiva Shambho by namaste" I only used one custom stencil I made. Keep changing size and moving different positions of it. Using little bit of airbrush, oil and pencil. Color choice comes with the flow of the music. I'm not sure does it make sense to you. I just want to free my mind.

D Akey
03-15-2008, 01:02 AM
Clever! What a cool use of a stencil.

I feel drawn in by the shapes, and yet the color sort of pushes me back.

Interesting contrast.

Mechanically, it's really brilliant. I like the soft shapeless quality of the color that is harnessed by the dark lines. It is something like wrestling an idea out of the ooze.

Very cool Pai.

pai

Thanks, D Akey. :) Before there's a man's face swirling to the centre but I made it invisible (without color). This is the previous version.

angelg01, that's amazing. It really kinda gets it right, in some ways, doesn't it.

There's a sort of etherial emptiness that often accompanies the formerly solid place they occupied.

It's as if the image is fading into the less tangible quality of memory.

Nice work.

04-19-2008, 05:12 PM
Pai, that one looks as if the artistic spirit and energy here at the center is getting yanked and pulled in very different directions at once. . . in that very gray colorless world.

Not only is the emotion being a stranger in a strange land, but an artist in an artless world. . .

I would call this The Victimized Soul.

Hey, very expressive, mojo. :) Who would guess that such beautiful colors could show such distressed emotion, right? :eek: But then again, such things are often hidden under a beautiful smile, aren't they? And among the beautiful things in life are the things no one wants to see. Well done! :)

Hello!

I'm happy to see there are places for members to post artwork, and think this is a wonderful idea for a thread.

I recently purchased 2.5 and have been having a great time experimenting with it. I recently completed this little abstract using the paint tubes and pushing paint around on the canvas, mixing some of my favorite colours. It is very dark and rainy where I live right now, so the bright colours lifted my mood. I call this one "Delight" - because that's how I felt when I finished! :D
