Devil’s Courthouse Too



Sometimes I like to work from a known subject, and abstract it, distilling the essence, and using the subject as a framework to play with paint and design.  This is an example of doing  just that.

Devils Courthouse is the mountain from my previous post. I thought about the experience of looking at the mountain from a car. I used that as the basis for the composition. I also played flat color and basic shapes off of mottled color and more complex shapes.

It’s really interesting to see how you take a subject and abstract it. I like the way you showed both versions.

I love the idea of working with a known subject and abstracting it. I do that sometimes with my poems. 🙂
