Navajo by =cogwurx is one of those things that grabbed my eye simply because its basic composition is abstracted in a way that makes one focus on nuances of texture and tone, which in this case is rich and narrowly focused; earthy, organic yet clearly designed. ( Featured by zeruch )

I like it, but if you don't mind me asking why is it called Navajo? The colors are similar to some of the tribes work.

Thanks. To be honest I really don't remember as it's been about 10 years since I named it so I don't know what was going through my head at the time.

This is brilliant work!

The combination of colors, texture and great composition makes this a piece you would not feel anything but good to put on your living room wall.

Wow. The craftsmanship here is just breathtaking. Do you have... well, a blueprint for things like this or do you just go with it?

I was inspired by the works of Suprematism and I just went with it on the thumbnails. Lots of thumbnails. Once I got the composition right, I took it to larger sketches and added color to get a direction for the final piece. Once those were nailed down, the final step was a full rough in Photoshop, printed it off and started to work on the final painting.

Wow this is beautiful! I love the symmetry and the color. The metallic paint really adds a lot to it to contrast with that deep red

I love how the shapes are wildly interacting, but at the same time they are in perfect harmony with one another's position in the composition. I also love the kind of sketchy painting style you used, as it gives the piece a real classical feel. Love the work!

Absoloutely magnificent! It truly reminds me of an eclipse. It's so upsetting to me that I'm not old enough to have a credit card; this is something I would be ecstatic to have in my home. A truly well-deserved DD :love:

Ohh, this is really very beautiful. Abstract Expressionism isn't quite my favourite kind of art, but this is so well done. :heart: The colours used and the texture of the painting keep making me come back to look at it more.
Wonderful job on this. :)

Thank you very much. Ironically, Abstract Expressionism wasn't my favorite kind of art either, I just kind of grew into it of the years.

*salutes* Instant favorite.

But if you don't mind me asking, if this was done with acrylic paint on a board of masonite, how did you manage to get a digital copy of it? Is this simply a photograph?

Fantastic piece nonetheless.

Yes, this is a photography. I took about 20 different pictures of it till I got a close match to the real thing.
