Today’s timelapse. #keepsafe
First of a series of animatics I’m posting on my Instagram channel cathconsidine.
I’ve created the animation with iMovie and my piano via iphone.
I aim to record my process as I work. There’s the sketches, pencils, digital or whatever, the colour studies and the final work. It’s fascinating to look back and see how a painting comes together. I created the animations with iMovie and recorded the piano tracks on my phone. You can see this one and more on my Youtube channel:
My paintings of daffodils features on the cover of Peter Mulholland’s new book “Love’s Betrayal: The Decline of Catholicism and Rise of New Religions in Ireland”. Published by Peter Lang: https://www.peterlang.com/view/9781788744324/xhtml/fm_copyright.xhtml“
I did a few paintings before this one suited Peter’s ideas for the cover, in his words “The 432 daffodils refer to the year that St Patrick is said to have come to Christianise Ireland and the cumulative development of the narcissism that led to the Church being brought to its knees by the scandal of child abuse while the shamrock in the foreground also allude to St Patrick and the doctrine of the holy trinity which is discussed in the book”.
Mist lifting in the evening sun. Darkness approaching.
