“Colour has long been a source of fascination to both scientists and philosophers. In one sense, colours are in the mind of the beholder, in another sense they belong to the external world. Colours appear to lie on the boundary where we have divided the world into ‘objective’ and ‘subjective’ events. They represent, more than any other attribute of our visual experience, a place where both physical and mental properties are interwoven in an intimate and enigmatic way. The last few decades have brought fascinating changes in the way that we think about ‘colour’ and the role ‘colour’ plays in our perceptual architecture. ”
I had my first go of an ipad last night, using the paper application… It was so fun! And what suprised me, is that my drawings on it were identifiably my style! This impressed me. For a technological device. The bleed and blending, the tactility of paint is what I play with to create a painting. I did not expect to be satisfied at all with an app for a touch screen. I want to play with it some more!
*as a side-note: I bumped into a lecturer from my old college at a party last night, the one I had for only one lesson, who said that “you are a painter”
I was just leaving for work and caught my neighbour, it turns out that the girl I’ve sat near a few times in the psychology lectures IS her daughter! Those hours have reminded me of what kick started (along side early morning life drawing classes) the main theme of my portraits: boundaries, proximity and relationships.
