I went outside last night and observed for a while and then came inside and did this. Not a very interesting composition with the moon smack in the middle, but I captured some of the lighting and colour effects that I wanted to. I’ll get organised soon and actually go outside with some paint (and a torch). 🙂
Notan is a Japanese word for light-dark and consists of a two value arrangement of shapes…. So it may seem counterintuitive to say that Notan is not about light and dark. [It’s an] exercise in simplification and in assigning visual weight.The Landscape Atelier
I’m always on the lookout for contemporary Christian artists who are highly skilled and expressing their faith in a striking and original way. I guess that’s because I’m looking ahead to how I might do the same. I don’t know that all these artists would necessarily refer to themselves as ‘Christian artists’, but their faith clearly comes through in their work.
