HONESTLY, I don't like painting. That's because my colouring sucks. I colour like a small kid. No kidding. I just don't have the talent to do that. Or maybe I guess I don't have the patience at all.
When my studio lecturer annouced that we were required to do a painting for a part of our assignment. I was stunned!
"Yau mou!! Not another painting?!"
I thought after our first year we don't have to do this kind of stuff anymore.
Mr Ng (our lecturer) said that before we come out with our building design. We had to come out with a concept in relation to our design. And he wanted us show that through our painting. Sad.
However, one good news is that: what he asked for is an abstract painting.
Haha! Abstract = Anything = Cincai = Don't need any skill also can. As long as you've got any point to support your idea behind the painting, that'll be fine. =p
So the eight of us from Mr Ng workbase bought our own canvas which costs RM40 (frame included) at The Zon. That's the cheapest we found. I don't think the Rainbow stationary shop would have that kind of price.
The medium used could be acrylic or oil paint. Since all of them were doing acrylic, I chose the latter one.
Buying the oil paint was not cheap as I thought. A pack of 12-colour paint cost me almost RM20 wtf.
So here it is. How I started doing something I never thought I would be doing in my life!
The blank canvas
Singing the Negaraku
Who knows, maybe suddenly I could got some inspirations from it.
While I was playing a fool, my room mate has already begun painting. In fact, he started a day earlier.
Look, so focus
And me, totally blank.
Who say? I am also very focus wat!
After wasting enough of time, I started with my first colour on the canvas.
Wow, the canvas was so amazing! It wasn't like normal paper where the paint just stick on it the moment you colour it. I gotta colour a few layer to cover the whole white area. And the oil paint doesn't mix with water cuz it is OIL mahh. There were also some kind of smell while I was doing the painting.
After brushing for a few time, I kinda enjoyed doing it. Adding the paint, rub rub rub. Add more paint, rub rub more. Then I added another colour.
And moving on...
After finishing the backdrop, I realised that the painting could be viewed upside down too.
I wanted it to be like the one on the left but then I thought the right one was better
The effect of oil on canvas produced a nice texture which I quite liked it. =)
The painter and the paint
For one moment, I felt like I was at the beach.
Tengah relax. Uh~ uh~
Next, I added red to it. Never knew it is also called scarlet.
No wonder Scarlett Johanson always look so red, like apple
After that I drew another three undentified objects.
Can anyone guess what's that?
The truth is, there is no specific answer. Cuz the painter also didn't know what was he drawing. Haha. This is called abstract mah! If people don't understand what you draw, then you have succeed.
You can even view it in any angle that you like.
