Yellow, No.8 | Art by Eric Christopher Jackson

Yellow | Photography Series by Eric Christopher Jackson

This Series was created in October 2018. I remember starting with a simple drop of paint on a black acrylic sheet. Splashes of water. Assuming this process was going to be easy…

However, capturing the right Composition with the proper Lighting proved to be more challenging than I imagined. Over time, I gave up my initial Concepts and decided to start from scratch. Smearing the acrylic paint across the black sheet, I saw something interesting and continued to capture images…

There were no limits. I did not fear mistakes any longer. It was a learning process. A time to explore… and make quite a mess along the way…

I work on a very small table (over whatever material I can find to fit what I need). Sometimes, this works to my disadvantage. It’s difficult to capture certain angles without showing too much of the space around the object. Oddly enough, a shot gone wrong became one of my favorite Compositions of the Session…

Ultimately, I should have removed the acrylic paint from the black acrylic sheet much sooner. The paint hardened in places and stained the sheet beyond repair. Back to the ‘drawing’ board? In a way. I need to use a surface that is more forgiving to hardened paint. However, the reflective surface of black acrylic sheets really add to the Style I’m looking for.

I would appreciate feedback on this Series, even as I consider adding a few more pieces. To leave a Comment on Individual images, simply ‘click’ the image, which will open up an Attachment Page. Comments may be entered below the art piece.

Finally, this Series for Sale directly from me on Hahnemühle Fine Art Pearl Paper or through one of the Online Stores listed below. I will have more Art News to share this Weekend.

God bless you.
