Mysterious Figure Paintings
You can use frustration to fuel creation for example, to make a series of mysterious figure paintings
You find a good idea, dont stop after the first painting, work hard on it and produce a series of paintings.
A series can be very satisfying and can drive an artist to create new ideas in their work. We artists get frustrated easily but this frustration can fuel creation. It is in those moments of thinking "I have no more ideas" that a new idea forms and that leads to exciting new possibilities.
Here follows a journey that resulted in a series of mysterious figure paintings....
The first one has the idea of an open door revealing a very personal scene within. Maybe we feel like unintentional intruders but for sure we are seeing something that is none of our business.
The experimentation with texture began with this painting, texturing material was used to create the orange/brown surround.
