This work is concerned with volume as presented in a painting. The investigation begins with a painting of drawn geometric shapes. Each successive painting problem explores additional facets of variations from this basic problem.
There is a total of six painting problems. The general intent of these problems is to investigate the following in regard to volume of experience:
- color contrast in hue, value, intensity, proportion and complement
- pattern variations
- the color phenomenon of simultaneous contrast
The medium is acrylic polymer emulsion applied with brush on stretch canvas.
