Here is a pic of my most recent painting, titled "Midnight Serenade". It is unfinished at the moment. There is still a lot of clean up that I am currently working on. Hopefully, I will have it all done very soon.
This painting is the first painting in a possible series that is influenced by the amazing work of Carlos Cruz-Diez. To me, this is really a study in value and saturation. The contrast created by the black horizontal lines work as a way of distracting or confusing the eye, in a sense. And, by using a mid-value grey, and similar value of blue, your eye will try to combine the two. This gives the illusion of a blurring effect between the two colors. Also, by cutting the blue into the black, the blue appears to be more vibrant and saturated than it actually is. To me, it gives off the feeling of looking through window blinds and seeing a beautifully bright glowing moon.
I hope you enjoy it as well. I will post pics of the finished product as soon as it's completed.
