Control Fest

Really just noting what has transpired over the past 6 months that leads me to this moment. I am in my studio working with this new piece. 6 months to the date of my return back to CDMX.

It’s the title so far because in the painting I intentionally left these words visible. Not sure just felt it had to be done. Can be corrected later if I change my mind. Right now I am sitting in the studio. The new piece is taped up to the bookshelves, so I can sit on the opposite side of the drafting table to observe. Making observations about the painting.

I like the addition of green to the composition. Why do I avoid greens? Recently during massage I had a green aura with purples and yellows that when transitioning appeared metallic gold.

I worked so hard to get the white highlights from the paper and not from the paint. I am happy with what is showing and the contrast it provides.

I tapped into something with the teal and purples stripe fading into each other on horizontal line.

I like that I blacked out the pink and blue lights that were creating a broad swatch of texture through the dancers. I can now see the bodies clearer. Questioning if I want to black out a few of the dancers. Or…as I type maybe make them fully blue figures in back. Dark blue? Silhouettes. Rolling through colors in my head. Pink -lots of pink in the composition to compete with. Need contrast. Orange but too electric. too much contrast. Green comes to mind. I don’t think it plays well with the others colors there. How much emphasis do I want on these silhouettes? I am actually thinking purple makes sense with the blues and blacks. It’s subtle enough to be seen or not. It brigs the pinks and purples in the composition out more and goes back to the idea of abstractions of skin tones in the paper.

  1. Turquoise is interesting with pink( lighter and more green than teal), but the idea of a blue toned purple/indigo is a good idea of for shadows
