Oil painting studies
Oil on canvas
2013 – 2014
A selection of work i did in the period i studied drawing and oil painting. While I studied oil painting I based most of my work on colour theory, and particularly Goethe’s colour theory, which focuses on the relationship between light and dark, and how our eyes interprets colour, and how that interpretation changes as the contrast in surrounding colours is changed.
These are small studies of relationships between colour, size and texture. My focus was to create different moods and tensions in the composition. I mixed different mediums into the paint, to create different finishes in the oil, and to build paint in different thicknesses.
