I really love non-representional art but haven't had to courage to really apply myself in this area. I'm also attracted to the figure as a result of my interest in non-representational art and find that simpler in many ways.

This is one of my works in the non-representational genre that I am pleased with.

I'm not looking for kudos, but welcome anyones views as to the merit of this piece. It's watercolor on Arches paper, about 32 x 60 cm.

note that this was stiched together manually in Photoshop from 3 scans so there may be some ghost lines across the image.

FWIW,

don

'allo fellow Perthite ! :D - and Welcome !:D
This looks lovely- soft , flowing and luminous- nice use of colour -wet on wet.

I have to add that you did well with the joining too- wish I could do that - still trying to figure out how to :confused:

Anyway - Well Done ! Hope to see many more.

Cheers Dahzl :D

And from another sandgroper, I agree, this has plenty of merit. I just watched the movie Vertical Limit and this reminds me of some of the mountain explosions and shots on that movie. Very nice indeed.

its always important to do the art that interests You as the artist....art for arts sake and all....representational art isnt as accepted as "pretty"abstracts are for sure but there is nothing like challenging the viewer by putting a face on humanity!

Hi Don!!! Welcome to here! :cool:

I love the palette on this and the smooth transitions. That brightness top center left is wonderful. It's like the sun behind surreal clouds of some distant world...lol...okay okay I shut up now!!!

Anyway, welcome and good job!!

I hesitate to comment because you said you don't want kudos. But I really don't mean it as such. I find that it definately has merit. Oddly enough, I'm reminded of an oriental painting of mountains.
