Oil painting based off one of the figures from my chance based group of formations
I generated the colours with chance, choosing one for background, light, and dark. This was an effort to investigate the detail in the figures, but I think it loses a lot of it’s initial qualities being isolated like this, and I think colour is best kept to a group of predetermined choices, rather than left completely to open chance.
I do like the dynamic between the two colour of the figure though, it implies iridescence. In a way, the odd combination and the unpleasantness of the combinations helps to portray the mercilessness of chance, capable of making or breaking a piece of work in an instant.
I think it broke it.
