Below a Helicopter


Here is the second of three final paintings for this semester. This one changed a lot from start to finish and was met with a lot of interesting criticism along the way. I think a painting like this immediately appears to be unfinished because of its lack of colour, especially when parts of it like the helicopter could easily be green, yellow or red.  The combination of the semi abstracted landscape and the fairly realistic helicopter is something that I have never really done before and I think I like how it turned out.  I feel like it provides enough content to direct the viewers thoughts in a certain direction, but leaves room for the mind to wander. In any case, it was an easy palette to manage.
