“Towards Abstraction” Day Four

I started to do two things; work on Myfanwy’s suggestions, and my own idea of combining cubist and hard edged techniques.

Isolated section of a cubist study meets masking tape.

Blockier colours meet cubist isolation.

Here I started playing around with Myfanwy’s idea of changing the line colour, in this case to white. I also used the masking tape.

Carrying out the same idea with yellow.

And indeed blue. I was going to fill in the gaps with colour but the constructions, especially the white, were a little too pleasing already.

Isolating an area of my larger Cubist study from last week. Limiting colour palette more now.

And then adding the colour change. A non-artist friend said the blocks of colour were really pleasing to the eye, that the whole thing was pleasing in general. This in itself was pleasing.

Same with this one. I like the little studies. My friend also compared these studies to mechanical devices which I liked, quite a link to the cubism they are derived from.
