OrbisTerrarum PhasmaPhasmatis by iddieforana OrbisTerrarum PhasmaPhasmatis by iddieforana
I definitely don't know Latin....so I've probably just butchered that language with the title of my painting. Eek.

Daily Deviation

Given 2006-02-27
It is simple and spartan, but OrbisTerrarum PhasmaPhasmatis by ~iddieforana conveys good use of space and form compositionally, and has an economy that allows the image to not be cluttered and still have something to offer. ( Suggested by Aldalambe and Featured by zeruch )

Very different from what I usually tend to look at. But I like it, it has a certain feeling that it portrays.

Good job :)

I like that you used green. It's not a color that's given much credit, rather like the other secondary colours oyu used (orange and purple). White brings it all together quite nicely.

As for that comment you got awhile back about adding the lavender line, I personally think you shouldn't. But that's entirely up to you, of course.

Oh yes, about the white xs...Are they painted? They seem to me like sheets of white paper. If they are in fact painted, then you did an amazing job of making it seem more three-dimensional.

This piece really speaks to me in it's simplicity, proving that you don't need to go to Jackson Pollock lengths to get great abstract.

Wait I didn't mean quarter inch, I don't know what I was thinking, it should be on sixteenth if you decide to add it

It could do with a quater inch width lavender line extending from top to bottom in the direct center unbroken except where it intercepts the crest of the meicircular form near the top creating the linear illusion that it passes behind, but it's just wonderful the way it is. I want to know if the "X" configured forms which resemble birds from a distance are found items implimented in addition to paint or if they are painted to appear as if they are found items. Either way the placement is excelent, and the argument that takes place between the duet of opposing triangles and these "X" forms creates somthing well above a tolerable balance in juxtiposition with the crescent at top.

However a word of advice (not mine) Beware of green, it will always start so innocently "just a little green " you will think to yourself, but then soon it will be more, and then more after that; But it doesn't end there because when you finaly manage to pull yourself away from the green (at long last) the green will begin to wisper to you quietly at first, and then gradualy louder untill it is screaming at you without mercy! "I WANT ORANGE GIVE ME ORANGE!ORANGE!ORANGE!ORANGE!" And it will not relent untill you have done what it has demanded! Therefore I have devised a special strategy for dealing with green and it's constant greed, add green *ONLY EVER* last, for if you do not....you will be doomed to add orange last.

I think the best things about the painting cannot really be seen through the picture. It si difficult to get the sense of texture (certainly cool, being painted on wood) and the surface extensions... The title is always curious, not only for the Latin (why Latin?) but because of what it might mean...

:iconiddieforana:

Definitely true, as I have mentioned about several of my paintings.... the pictures never do them justice. Namely the texture.

And actually, it's painted on canvas. The only wood used was in the surface extensions.

Latin because it is beautiful...but mostly because I'm a linguistics nerd, and so much of our language origniates from Latin...I just find it fascinating :)

I think it is cool that you like latin so much. I admire it, yet I find it irritating in a way. Hard to descrive. It is much too similar to Spanish, yet it has all the annoyances that Spanish seems to have rid itself of already.
