Re: Inferno

Your painting looks like hell to me, no put intended. I can't really critique it since it has no real center of interest or much of any real life forms. I can ony wonder what you were thinking when you painted this. Is this your vision of where the politicians are going? I'll leave the critiques for others who follow. I just don't understand this art form.

Re: Inferno

When I paint these I have no preconceived idea of what will be in the painting. I pick contrasting colors, mix them around and look for images and what not. I then enhance what I see and hope for some cohesiveness. Based on the demons, dragons, bodies and the pig from hell, I would say this would be where the politicians should go.

Re: Inferno

Lol!! I think that may be a feeling amongst many! I can see lots in this work, I see figures, fire, pain, energy, dance, perhaps tribal ceremony, lots of colour and contrast, drugs, dreams, experiences, fantasy, hot versus cold, melting forms, insects, aliens, conflict and strain, frustration and fatigue, torture and imprisonment, distortion and horror! Much more too! I like it, I am not a big fan of abstract either, but i can feel a lot of different emotions in your work! My two cents worth anyway. keep going and post more. Cheers and be happy. Debs. =))
you can do anything you put your mind to positively.

Re: Inferno

I see the Queen in the middle, in her long gown and over-garment, arms raised, 'Stop all the madness'! (kinda looks like a puddy cat with a crown ) Gads, she might even be pregnant!

I agree that a center of interest, some area of focus, would initially engage the viewer more, as it's a bit overwhelming at first.

Do what you love!

Re: Inferno

Reminds me of the back wall in the Sistine Chapel. Creating a painting and factoring in 'luck' to make it work may serve initially but once you get a better handle on what you want to do, I think 'luck' will be replaced with 'skill'.
