I’ve been studying the interaction of polygons and light sources. This came about by wanting to paint geometrical rock formations. Regular rocks are dark and absorb most of the light… but I want to paint psychedelic mirror rocks! As the light hits the different surfaces from above, it bounces off the neighbor rocks creating complex patterns of shadows and reflected light.

Transforming Triangles

Notes for future paintings Bow Tie

  • Use a bow tie to represent the concept of twisted space 
  • Create space using horizontal lines 
  • 1. Horizontal line fading background 2. Solid bow tie 3. Sets of perpendicular lines within the bow tie.
