Compare Colors: Home

In the above, I tried colors different from the previous one (below), which was more vivid. The call is for an exhibition for homeless people, and I think some gravity is due. I still don’t want to make it taken for granted by expressing gravity with sad colors, so I’m trying to find a right balance. What do you think – how would you compare this one with the previous one (below)?

I was implementing Graham’s helpful suggestion when I couldn’t resist going wilder. I wanted to add hope to my rather desolate rendition of a lightening-stricken treeย (below), but I didn’t want to make it an afterthought. The contrast between the strike and new leaves had to be the main theme. And probably the leaves wouldn’t need to be prominentโ€”they just needed to be there, as “pennants”. So here they are.

Drawing โ€œTranquilโ€ / ‘๊ณ ์š”ํ•œ’ ๊ทธ๋ฆฌ๊ธฐ

Tranquil is drawn after a tree in Coe Fen. On fine afternoons, the tree stands with a glow of sunshine on its back. In the photo, you can see it is growing new twigs, that almost look like saplings, from its limb lying on the left. Surrounded with lush vegetation, it looks as though it symbolizes resilience.

In the drawing, I omitted all leaves and abstracted out the background, to focus on the form of the tree’s body. While I followed what was compelled by visual composition, I wonder how that changed the substance. To me, compared to the real-life model, the tree’s situation seems more desolateโ€”as some of you suggestedโ€”, as if the whole tree and its surroundings are burned down. Its ultimate victory, which in fact happened, is suggested only in spirit. I wonder how you feel.

I want to try another version of the tree. My challenge is to keep the spirit of hope (and perhaps the leaves) without ruining the composition. I may modify the form, but I’d like to keep the original tree’s intuitive appeal and subtlety. That’s a lot to wish for, so I would appreciate any recommendation for works to model after.
