They require a BIT of work from a construction standpoint, BUT they are well worth it, if anyone wants details on how to build the support, I can provide them...

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

I made an attempt to do a GIF of my WIP but it wouldn't load. I tried resizing it and it said it downloaded but it didn't work so I ended up deleting it. So unfortunately mine will have to be static rather than animated.

I have a couple ideas to draw the eye down the "hall" but haven't as yet come up with the exact specifics. Got to think about it a little more.

I was thinking of buying somewhere next year but now I've already started to look around so at the very least I'd be in the same situation as you. I would love details on how to construct any of these things. I might even have a go at designing some of my own one day.

Well, I did actually finish painting before I came away but unfortunately I didn't have time to take the photos and post them before I left. They'll be there by the weekend.

This is looking REALLY COOL Ginger ! Your itty- bitty paintings rock but I really have the feeling of the walls coming towards me. Can't wait to see it finished. Isn't this stuff amazing ? ( I'll say it again, great project idea Andrew. )

Thanks. I really enjoy this, it forces you to really think about perspective, and how the eye and mind work both with and against each other when we view art. I have to be careful, though- My house is being overrun by moving pictures...

I am exploring all sorts of optical art, in addition to these... Have found lots of interesting things. I am in the early stages of 'cooking up' yet another project- Dealing with percieved motion and the periphrial drift illusion- Some strange stuff. I have paintings that seem to move and flow, although in real life, they are not... They are flat, still paintings. It is fun stuff.

Looking good!!

I like the arch better- Glad you made that change. Gives it character!

Looks like this one will work especially well- The bricks really draw the viewer back into it all.

Aren't rows and rows of bricks fun to paint? Especially in perspective like that... Aggrivating, to say the least....

Thanks - I wouldn't say it was aggravating; I found it quite therapeutic really, but maybe that says more about my week at work than anything else.

Neil, I can't wait to see the finished product here. I agree the arch works better and it all draws you to the center so well.

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

Well, I am off to my ship tomorrow, so I wont be able to check on things quite as often as before... BUT, I will still check in from time to time!!

I will be on board for about a month, and then I will be back ashore for another month... I hope everyone keeps chugging away in my absence, and has fun with the project!!

I am working on a few other ideas for projects dealing with illusion in art, as I mentioned previously. There are a few ideas that I am tossing around, including 3-d effects (Yes, using glasses... I know, kind of corny, but hey, its FUN!) and percieved motion illusions, perephrial drift, all sorts of fun stuff... I'll post more details when I know them!

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

Have a great trip Andrew, looking forward to hearing about your percieved motion illusions and perephrial drift. I looked into it about a year ago but I couldn't get it to work in a painting. Lori

IT can be a challenge, as for some to work, everything has to be PERFECT. The majority of them are done with computers, so to copy one you have to be careful... I did a couple test pieces, that I posted Here and Here, both were acrylic on panel.

I have been working on refining the images a bit more, and incorporating it into a piece with more to it than a simple illusion, working bits of surrealism into it, etc. Some of the results are interesting to say the least.

At times, my studio is more of a mad scientists workshop than a studio... It is a fun place to come and play!!

Re: Project Discussion: Reverspective

Hi everyone - Wow - those blocks are looking great - Ginger and Neil.
Carol, I guess I already said I love yours. Mine was started as a bowling alley lane but I painted over it last night with a brand new idea I got (hope it works). I wanted something pretty like Carol's. So it will be scenic. My time is really limited right now , but I don't think it will take too long to paint so hopefully by next weekend I'll have it up.
