It really was different experiencing the paintings in person as opposed to through photographs online. The atmosphere wasn't something that could be brought to life through a monitor or phone screen. I believe I captured how I felt fairly well, but I don't think my interpretation of Humphries' painting is standard by any means. However, since abstract art is subjective, I suppose whether or not I have a typical reaction is irrelevant.
I think I painted more than necessary (there were several points where I thought it looked pretty complete) because I have a slight compulsion to work close to the limit. The painting could overall use more purple to evoke the UV lights. I adjusted the saturation levels at the end to make the colors really pop, but it probably would have been better to leave the blues less saturated to give a more tranquil effect and focus more on the other colors.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
