At The Bazaar- My Entry To Our Group For Today

Art Prints

Having read about member Mohamed, I thought it fitting to upload this to our group in light of his being in Marrakach, and this somehow evoking that very place.

Vivian... this is a fantastic piece of abstract painting... I left a lengthy comment on your page where Iwax pretty poetic about your mastery of white to guide the eye where it needs to go... You (and everyone else in the group wise enough to have a look) will have to click and enlarge and visit the page... it's worth it... I look forward to spending time with your portfolio after Canadian thanksgiving!

Hi, Vivian, I too commented on your page. I don't know how to put into words what I see here, not having a lot of technical terms, but the shadings and white have made it so interesting and flowing at the same time. I really love it.

Thank you for commenting, Jonathan, especially at this wonderfully busy time. I especially appreciate your thoughts about 'white'....it is a 'colour' I use extensively in my work because it, above all others, even 'red', satisfies my freedom to play........'red' stops the eye gloriously and is very popular of course, but for me, white enhances everything around it. I'll upload another 'white' based image soon, just for illustrating my p.o.v.
At a recent workshop I attended, the tutor was aghast when I got going with 'my' whites....a no-no in his book.....told me not to use it....I chose to ignore him........and will show you why, in the next upload.

Also, thanks most sincerely Mathilde.......I feel you and I could spend hours together on all the nuances we enjoy ... and thanks most sincerely for commenting on the image page,too.

Love this one Vivian... it's really a great piece. Love the white... you make me want to add more white to my work and see what it would look like.

Thanks Jumper..........you and I talked receently about the scraping back method we share, and with whites, that's a great way of working, unless you do want thick,juicy whites....they do dominate,lol...........but for me, they answer for light, due to my failing vision too, and my innate favouritism for white........an underpainting (dry) helps, too, if you want to keep the white, but 'suggest' undertones without mixing......have a 'go'.............

OOps.......and THANK YOU all for delicious comments on this art/page....so very much appreciated...especially due to the sources......Cheers,V

Love this one Vivian ;) ....I love the whites..had no idea you had issues with your eyesight! I do as well. ..I think that is why I favor intense colors in mine (for the norm). Wonderful painting...voted/fav'd
