Re: "Dimensions"

The colors in your second set of photos are completely different from the first photo, at least on my screen. I like the second more vibrant and bluer ones much better. The overall composition and forms are well balanced and appealing. It gives the feeling of heavenly bodies in a swirl of space dust: very nice. We seem to be on a space theme lately in the forum!

Thank you I still can't get the true color of this in a photo it's more like the second set but more teal in color. Space is a cool art subject the possibilities are endless.

Re: "Dimensions"

I like the positioning with the planet(?) in the upper left hand corner best. I think it could benefit from a bit of dark shades in there but that is just me. Those gradient blue hues would definitely be tough to photograph easily!

I have thought of adding a darker mist of Purple / Pink across the painting in the really light area, still debating that though.

I think it would be a benefit to my eye. The colours you have on there now seem very close together on the spectrum and a bit of dark would pop everything lighter forward a bit I think... That said, if it looks terrible when it is done, remember I am a newbie and my opinions are unreliable!

Re: "Dimensions"

Thank you Bobby nothing is ever ruined this painting was done over another painting I'll probably shoot some darker mist later on this evening and I would never blame someone else for there suggestions if I didn't like it anyway.
Thanks for the input.

Re: "Dimensions"

Some mathematicians made a graphic drawing of what the sixth dimension would look like in terms of line etc and it was incredible wish I could find it and post it on here as am sure you would have appreciated that

Good job with your figure ground relationships and your sub division of planes very nice indeed ...( I am getting a nice feeling of being placed in that space like a sculpture I can exist in as the planets revolve around me very dynamic and compelling with your oblique curls set against the positions of rest of the horizontal lines....(in terms of movement you could counterbalance your sets or groupings of lines against each other maybe slightly differently in terms of compositional placement)warp speed Picard !. Great job

Thank you Kay My fiance said my work has been very dark lately so I came up with this one.

Tital: Thanks for the input and insight I have a few more ideas about the other dimensions just need to figure out how to show them on canvas.
