Title: The Super Saber, acrylic on canvas, 16X19.5. Painting has much finer detail when viewed in person.
I wanted to depict this old Super Saber jet in it’s air national guard colors, flying over a large storm. In this turbulent setting I hoped to make the best use of my composition’s parts. That being, striking a balance with the plane in the foreground and the heavy dark shades of grey and white in the storm in the background.
When you look at it for a minute, does it feel like there is symmetry, that everything is connected?
The other key elements that I wanted to meld together are: A definable focal point (yellow stripe), a feeling of motion (angle of plane v turbulence), accurate perspective with shadows and a background light source to highlight the aircraft. So what do you think, did I make it or not? All comments welcome…I’m still learning! Thanks for looking.
Check this out, video of model Super Saber, it looks so real.
