Although I am fairly pleased with the colour intensity I am achieving in my canvas paintings I am still striving to heighten the impact. I have begun exploring fluorescent paints in some smaller paintings to see what effect they have when worked with watercolour.
I like this definition, it seems to connect to how I want my paintings to be seen.
Fluorescence: The emission of light by a substance that has absorbed light or other electromagnetic radiation . A form of luminescence.
The effect here is dazzling, I love the radiance and applying the paint excites me; however I feel a more subtle approach is required to capture my sense of the landscape.
This one I am much happier with, I like the bleeding and the balance of complimentary colours. I think the way forward with these paints is to use them sparingly; vivid flashes of neon emitting from deep, dark voids.
