LOCKDOWN ART DIARY PAGE 4

WEEK 3 AND 4. 

COVID 19 electronmicroscope images are often red. In reality they are so small that they neither absorb nor reflect light. Therefore they are colourless. They are artificially given colour so they can be visualised. I decided to experiment rendering the driftwood red and change the colours of the bandages

Paring back the paint not only revealed the texture of the driftwood but gave it a meat lik quality. Ironic when COVID19 was thought tp originate from meat in the wet markets.
