I began with the idea of expressing the connection I feel between music, colour and movement. They are all different levels of vibration, after all - translated through our senses to affect our emotions.
I started with a painting I created at a live dance event. It is quite a simple image, but I feel that it's quite evocative.
It can be watered down to make it thinner or left as it is, a lovely thick cream. I use it with a roller or a brush.....
Back to the project...... when the gesso was dry, I painted thin coats of red and yellow acrylic randomly over it.
When that had dried, I started putting the figures on, some by stencilling, some by painting onto the cutout figure and printing it. Some by painting around the cutout..... until I had 18 different images of the same picture.
Next step was to give them all a coat of varnish to protect them...... what do you think?
