Yesterday my aim was to paint another house. Originally I planned on creating a darker house using darker colours like browns greens black etc. However I found a pink piece of wood which I really wanted to work with. I could imagine the really colourful house looking great on the wood. I started dripping lots of white emulsion from the top. I felt it complimented the existing white marks on the wood. It also reminded me of artist’s work I’d seen inLondonat the Whitechapel; Wilhelm Sasnal, particularly his piece: Power plant inIran. He used oil paint in his work maybe I should experiment with this. I really struggled with the perspective in this piece. I challenged myself to a more 3D looking house with more perspective. Unfortunately the house was too thin at first and I still haven’t perfected the shape, it needs more work. I also puzzled over the colour I should use. In the end I went with pale blue colours and I hint of purple. I wasn’t sure what the colour said about the piece at first. Thinking about how I just titled this blog entry though I’m thinking it could be on the lines of the mood when someone is said to be feeling Blue. I think the colours work great with the bright pink and after looking back at the photos I think the darker door had more impact.
