Re: Equinox

What? If I had posted something like "a gentle combination of hues redolent of serenity and relaxation," you would have thought you were losing your touch.

Sometimes I find monsters more enjoyable than humans.

Re: Equinox

I like the soft blue on the woman, it contrasts nicely with the harshness of the other colours and makes gives her a vulnerability that heightens the feeling of danger. The monsters look very reminiscent of the work of Harryhausen, especially the one on the right.

Re: Equinox

See I like monsters, so I saw this and thought what great dreams she's having.

I like how one of her shoes is missing too.



Great stuff.

The movie that inspired my painting was made by youthful Harryhausen fans ( Dennis Muren and David Allen) and Muren went on to work for George Lucas and created the "Go-Motion" effects process which added blurs to stop motion making the monster animation look a bit more realistic. I worked on several Pillsbury Doughboy commercials with David Allen at Cascade Pictures of California back in the seventies. So monsters are second nature to me....

Thanks, Virginia!! I can't think of why I made this composition other than I wanted to paint the stop motion monsters from the movie EQUINOX in one painting, and having the girl on a couch surrounded by the beasts just seemed natural...I draw and paint mostly from instinct unless I'm doing a portrait or something like that.

Re: Equinox

Thank you...Personally I love nightmares....you get to experience situations of horror and then you wake up and find, to your relief, it was all a bad dream. Sort of why there are horror movies and roller coaster....you get to suspend dis belief for a few moments and them come out knowing you're ok.
