Painting Number 4

A little behind the scenes note on this painting, it is a REALLY hard painting to photograph.  I used pure white for the background - (click here if you'd like to see a close-up of the white impasto on my facebook page) and when the image is exposed for pure white the color fades away.  This isn't the best reproduction of it, but there will be a better reproduction of it on my website in early June.  Just a note - this painting was painted using only three colors, plus black and white.   Can anyone guess which colors - here's a hint, they're made by Lukas. . .

Painting Number 3

Here is the 3rd painting - and yes, there is a purpose to the order.  (Title Hint: the painting may illustrate more than one element or principle. . .)

A New Series of Paintings

In a couple of weeks the next edition of The Artist's Magazine will include a series of paintings I did.  The theme of the paintings is "The Fundamental Elements and Principles of Design."  Elements of design are the building blocks of any visual imagery.  The successful use, and combination, of these elements will display certain principles of design.  In these paintings there is a central figure who represents "art".  She illustrates each element and principle of design in each painting.

I'll post these images until the release of the magazine. . . without titles.  See if you can guess what element or principle the painting is describing.  The first one is pretty easy. . .
