when I am creating an artwork my main goal is to clearly convey an idea or theme that I am set to show. The materials I use to convey a theme or idea usually revolve around painting materials with concerns to either pallet knives or brush if I'm trying to do an abstract painting with more scenery (pallet knives) or a painting which is focused on an object (brush). another way in which I use materials for conveying a theme or idea is through my color scheme andthe paints I use, for example in my art series I used darker colors in my container painting to show how the container was a negative part of the main character's experience I used darker colours, and for the other two paintings when the main character was aboard his yacht or life raft he still had hope and remained positive so I used lighter blues, yellows, and oranges.
With regards tomy audience I want them to think and feel connected to the art as though they can relate to the experiance of being on open waters on a sunny day or being in a hazy dream like state that feels like home.
For this painting I wanted to show how I make art in a way that isn't necessarily accurate to what it looks like in real life while also showing the useof colours from dark to bright or bright to dark depending on where you look at it from.
