Contemplation by hyper-tom Contemplation by hyper-tom

'Contemplation'
2012
Acrylic on Aluminium Panel
140cm by 100cm.

Similary to the last painting this work was created in paint whilst refering to many references, from photographic ones, to plasticine models.

Again the images I worked from were of different focal lengths and from slightly different viewpoints. I wanted to start the ideas flowing with the first two relatively simple paintings. The next ones will incorporate different ideas into these current themes in an attempt to further question reality and the world we know.

Thanks..

Hi Tom 
Fantastic work, I have just been to see your solo show at plus one, amazed.  wow

Can I ask what make of acrylic paint you use and what mediums you use to make it fluid enough to go through the airbrush.  I am just ready to buy my first airbrush so doing lots of research. 

Thank you and keep up the amazing work.

thanks for dropping by the show... I currently use a mixture of liquitex soft body or more airbrush specific paints such as golden fluid acrylics and also some of the createx illustration colours.. i thin the liquitex mostly with water and also airbrush medium, the createx have a special thinner which goes with them. thanks

Hi Tom 

Thank you for taking time to help me, I am still in the very early stages of learning all this so all help is greatly received. 

Looking at your works close up I could see that you managed to get so very fine fain patterns front the airbrush and I am at a loss as to how you achieve that, very well done. I feel a lot of practice and frustration is coming my way experimenting with different paints and how to thin them etc. 

Thanks again  and best of luck with your amazing show.
