playing with offcuts



playing with offcuts from the edge of a larger painting - side strips cut to 5cm squares. I quite like the mini landscapes it created

Re: playing with offcuts

I would be tempted to add bright colors in some places of them, can see all kinds of magical and futuristic worlds in them personally.

Re: playing with offcuts

I actually like the very limited colours I have done these in the past with more colours.

They are the edges from a stormy seascape, that has waves crashing over the harbour wall, not quite finished yet. Also keeping colours very limited.

Turning the squares around suggests woods to me and mini versions of sections of the the waves but abstract, not explained, open to interpretation but landscape based.

Re: playing with offcuts

Oh I saw starscapes, caverns, forests, mushroom fields, and a spacesport cantina. I meant I would add color to them now to turn them into exactly those things, with bright colors to draw focus to the main element and keeping everything else fairly muted. Some really good abstract techniques here, I will be sure to utilize it in the future for sure. (Probably digitally, to help develop some ideas for landscapes since I want to do a few hundred in the next decade)

Re: playing with offcuts

I love the colours just as they are. To my eyes it's all rock formations and winter landscapes. Wonderful!

did this digitally (and put them on here in their own threads) and think I want to do a series based on them - maybe in paint plus pastel over it to get the kind of marks and overlays. Or monoprint with paint and pastel .....

digital experiments are so helpful in working through ideas
