The texture and colors, the abstractness (is that a word?) ... everything about it is terrific. Super painting. If it were mine, it would already be on a wall!

Question: Are you using stencils or masks of the forms to get the sharp edges or some other technique?


VictoriaS 06-12-2001 01:24 PM

Bob, thank you! Tape. I used only tape this time. I've done others like this but with rounded forms, and for those I had to cut templates out of tracing paper.

Thanks again.

I like this, very quirky! I have seen your others in Critique forum and haved enjoyed them much.

This is a very interesting piece, Victoria. The composition is great, and I love the colours!
How did you achieve the splatter effect? I've tried using a toothbrush, and ended up with more paint on me than the painting!

Thanks, Mary.

Kandiman: Thank you. Toothbrush. Works fine for me. Maybe you were holding it backwards??

I love your angles and the shadows are so crisp that you really get the feeling of bright hot sunshine! I like your stuff!

Why do I make it so hard?

I normally don't care for this type of painting but have done very well with this one. Great work! I like it alot.

Hey Victoria,
Im not into abstract form, but I like this one a lot. Well done.

I like the way the diagonals lead the eye in, and the combination of sharp lines and splatter works very well, its great,

Nice effect Victoria, well done!

I love it; in fact, I'm inspired to try something similar myself. I love the sharp angles and the texture from the splatter.

Please keep them coming!
