Well following on from my last blog post – it seems I’ve got a great success with the “Hot stuff” painting – and the person it is directly aimed at has fallen in love with it……… for all the right reasons! So I’m a very happy bunny! YAY!!!!
And so on to other things – another Fantasy Fanny to be exact. And I thought I’d try to do the painting just with shades of reds. It seemed a good idea when I started and I was confident that the painting would look good. But then it struck me that it might not be such a good idea after all. For………………..er, oh, very obvious reasons!!!! So, I looked hard at what I had painted so far and decided that turquoise and yellows would brighten it and enhance the painting considerably, and that’s what I aimed at, and think they do, vastly! I love the colours in this one, and the turquoise adds greatly to the image, to me. But then I’m a big fan of turquoise! So, Queynte 18 it is! Ah, but, there’s more to tell. Because I liked the shapes and the tones, and thought I’d try and do it again, but this time with muted colours on a block canvas to see how that went – and I’m delighted with that effect too! You can see its still the same image, but its more “decorative” in its abstraction – a sort of “abstract” abstract in a way! Which was an interesting concept to explore. So that’s Queynte 19. Instead of naming it “Queynte 18 muted” which it technically is, I thought it should have its own title!
And I had some interesting feedback re the Fantasy Fannies today – telling me that it was a mistake to put the little woman logo within the picture because then it was obvious what the image was. If I left it out it would be more abstract, and considered more appealing too and I might sell more pictures. I disagree. I think she needs to be there to make the point, even if I lose sales because of it. But I’m interested to hear what you think………………..
