I wanted mimic the color scheme of the original piece but reflect my confusion as to what the author truly meant. The smudged areas are meant to represent the layers of hidden meanings in the original paintings that I hope I uncovered a bit of.
I used a program called Freshpaint to mimic oil paint brush strokes.
I am not sure that I was able to capture my reactions well in the work, but I tried to connect it to the original work through the colors. I tried my best to understand the meaning behind Davis's nonrepresentational work and the message he was trying to send through his color choice.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
