Movement, Repetition, Cast Shadows in Art, Babad's Painting Soccer Game



In my painting, Soccer Game, I wanted to convey the movement of the game and figures.  I have done prior posts about movement,  edges and direction of shapes. In my above painting I have also created movement with repetition. The heads of the players from left to right move downwards in a curve. There is also a space between the cast shadow and foot of the soccer player on the left. These spaces between cast shadows and form create movement. Today I saw a wonderful photograph of a skate board jumper. The figure was on a diagonal at the top of the jump. The cast shadow and skate board were separate from the figure. It is best to paint figures at the top of the movement.

Movement, Structure in Art, Duchamp and Babad Paintings





In my above painting, Soccer Player, I wanted to emphasize the structure of the figure.  I did this with modeling the light, half tone and form shadow. I did not blend these areas so that the form and volume of the player would be accentuated. When I stress the figure’s movement, I frequently blend and smudge edges. However, the diagonal direction of the figure in my painting contributes to the movement.  In Marcel Duchamp’s painting, Nude Descending a Staircase, No.2, the artist conveyed volume and space with his use of light. Movement was achieved by overlapping the figure several times and moving it downward.

Form of Waves in Art, Babad's Painting Cresting Wave


In my above painting, Cresting Wave, I wanted to convey the form of the wave and water with value (gray scale) and color temperature. I considered the cool value of the blue sky and used warm sunlight from the left side. While water is also influenced by its surroundings and bottom, I concentrated on the sky and sunlight to model form. I considered an open half sphere and the upper top sphere for the crest of the wave. The planes facing the sky were painted with cool hues to reflect the sky. The bottom of the wave received more color from the sky. Immediately under the crest, the water is painted a warmer hue as it received more exposure from the sun. My shadows are a cooler temperature and a darker value.

Movement and Speed in Art, My painting Hockey Speed



In my above painting, Hockey Speed, I wanted to convey the movement and speed of the hockey player. I used cross contour lines that are apparent at the skates. I also blurred and smudged the edges of the figure’s shape and the form’s light. Movement was also achieved by the diagonal angle of the figure. In this painting my background is abstract. The focal point is the glove. The warm light comes from the left side.

This is a digital painting using mainly traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints on coarse cotton canvas (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
