Dali inspired painting:
This is my version of Salvador Dali’s “Persistence of Memory”. I had a crazy 2am idea to do a “melted clock painting” but I wanted to make it more 3D. So a way I went.
The process begins:
In this step of the process I have stretched some screen (petty coat lining) over the canvas background, and applied the first coat of gel medium tinted with transparent paints.
Here is some woodwork… I just can’t seem to stay away from doing some woodwork.
Woodwork done back to the artsy stuff!
This is the foreground screen that the cock will be on.
The Clock Basil applied to the screen and beginning to build the “skin” for the face out of a mixture of acrylic clear mediums.
The freshly finished clock face and textured branch… all thats left to do is wait for the paint to dry and connect the 3 layers.
A Breakdown of the layers:
I like to title my paintings on back, also I give info on the meaning of my work. Most of my pieces now have a message, and I would like future generations to have some insight into what exactly I had in mind.
After looking at the painting for a bit I finally decided to guild the streams with aluminum leaf. It adds a neat effect to the foreground skin.
I thought it would be cool to show this side since most won’t see it.
The second layer of the painting the “skin screen”, shown this time with a white background to show off the sky painted on the screen portion.
I just like this view of the clock layer… I guess this is what it would look like to look out of the painted world.
The white background shows the painted screen which depicts a eroded landscape.
Here’s the finished painting.
27″X33″ Acrylic on screen and canvas with wood.
