Following on from yesterday's post, I've been a busy little bee and have spent a couple more hours on my Jacaranda painting.
Possibly as a surprise, I decided to go for a slightly impressionistic effect with my painting. The concept was I wanted the Jacaranda to be instantly recognisable and look quite life-like from a distance (see Fig 1):
|Fig 1 - Jacaranda painting from a distance|
But that when you get up close, you realise that the entire painting consists of vertical dashes (Fig 2):
|Fig 2 - a slightly blurry picture of dashes.|
I'm actually pretty proud of this piece so far. I hope you like the direction I've taken it in.
I still feel I have a little work to go to call the painting complete (particularly around the bottom section), but overall, I think it is going well.
Stay tuned, for the final update in a day or two's time!
