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.
*Note that this study is a segment of the mirror & lens / optics series.
Notes for future paintings
- 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.
