My second portrait was a study in the abstract, using darker colours to represent different levels of shadow.
It’s a great metaphor for life.
Sometimes we look at things in a certain way… the way we are used to seeing them, the way we always have. Yet taking a step back, trying something different – truly ‘abstract’ – allows us to see things from a different perspective and often opens up opportunities and possibilities for us which we just hadn’t seen before.
It’s about taking our blinkers off, opening our eyes and minds to allow things to bubble away in our unconscious mind and keeping as many opportunities available to us as we can.
An analogy I’ve used with clients for years is one most of us have heard of…
“You can think inside the box or you can think outside the box.”
But I say, what if there is NO box. If possibilities are endless. If your opportunities are only restricted by the boundaries – the box – YOU constrain them in?
Be open… be creative… be abstract in your thinking and you’ll be amazed at the new opportunities you see already around you!
Miss Tones was a study in colours to represent highlights and shadows, giving the picture an almost watercolour feel. The adaptability of Acrylics.
