Colorless Painting - A study in Light and shadow.
I was playing around with the brush, and had my color all the way to white, fully loaded, and I noticed that I could create a painting that had no color, yet still had an image because of the light/shadow on the canvas. I am curious what people can do with this concept of no color and using only a heavy brush or brushes create a painting that has enough visual dark/light to be recognizable. I have uplaoaded a test wheelbarrow just for an example.
Unfortunately, I have not found a way to put the picture in there, only as an attachement.
A varation of this, pick any for the canvas, use the color picker to pick that color up and use only that color. A mono painting. You may use any tool you like, but this is about using texture to get light/shadows to show up and create a painting from it.
fyi: to get the picture to show in the forum (instead of an attachment), you need to resize the image so the longest side is no more than 800 pixels.
Hi DrBeams here is a tree in the wind
Interesting. I guess when i originally posted this I was thinking about the texture, not so much the color. Any color as long as it was the only color. I was prompted by another posting where someone had layed down a very thick layer of paint and then used an eraser to make "potholes" in the paint.
Good start. I can see the tree.
couldn't come up with anything better than yours so i fudged it! sorry?
I can see curtains blowing at the window...............eh? What do you think?
Best to you
