My Early Paintings

My early years of paintings were with acrylics on posterboard which was a disaster. My next paintings were acrylics on canvasboard.
One day I saw a picture of a Salvadore Dali painting of a child lifting water to show a sleeping dog. From that time I was amazed at his imagination, skill and talent and I guess tried to emulate him.

The following display is acrylics on canvasboard.

The first is my first attempt with acrylics. It was a school project where I was to use complimentary colors.


Sometimes I get images in my head and try to bring them out where they are more than a thought.


The next painting is about man being attached to his evolved background, the line showing a communication connection. He unknowingly knows that nothing new ever happens and the TV’s show the continuous rerun of his history.


The next painting shows man feeling tied down to earth by the burdens of the world and can only watch as the birds freely fly by doing spectacular aerobatics as if taunting him.


The next painting shows man’s struggle to keep his head above water fully knowing that only death will free him.

That is it for this post the next will be my advancement to oils on canvas. I hope you enjoyed sharing.

Andrew.
