This original colour pencil rendering was inspired by three desires...first to depart from the beautiful albeit constrained detail work demands of photo reference art and secondly, inspiration from ( the late great painter) Robert Genn and (and his daughter ) Sarah’s Twice Weekly Letter, “ The Painters Keys”. The topic, “ Six exercises in Magic” set my blood racing and my creative muse leading the way. Google it for FUN...it involves dividing a small canvas into six areas...painting warm to cool, side by side areas of either primary or secondary Colour of the same intensity and value, painting areas of formless recession and protrusion, painting alternating patches of tone or Colour along a partly disclosed curve while holding the line.
...yes...a lot of formlessness going on ...YAY!! ...I’m in the meditational zone! Then the last two exercises call for developing a “ transformer” and painting a “ simple” life motif or subject and partly covering it up... Piqued your curiosity, did I?? Good...for more instruction, go to the master source by googling The painters Keys and having a FUN evening!
Thirdly, the landscape...”formed” and derives its title from this quotation:
“Throw your dreams into space like a kite, you do not know what it will bring back, a new life, a new friend, a new love, a new country.” (Anaïs Nin)
