A Shot Away From You

Monday, September 2nd, 2019

A Shot Away From You, abstract art by Amy Crook, an abstract purple bullseye on black paper

A Shot Away From You, 5″x7″ watercolor on Arches cover black paper

The Avengers are a huge cultural phenomenon right now, and that first movie is one of my favorites. I decided to round out my original set of MCU abstracts by adding in the missing members of the OG crew. The title is from a Franz Ferdinand song, fittingly.

Hawkeye doesn’t get a lot of love in the movies, but his current comics run is pretty much amazing. Clint Barton is a genius with the bow, and a human disaster the rest of the time but somehow you can’t help but love him anyway.

The color scheme is based a little more on his comics run, but the bullseye is right on target for any version of Hawkeye.

After all, he never misses.

Marvel

Tuesday, July 16th, 2019

Marvel by Amy Crook, an abstract representation of Captain Marvel's logo because reasons

Marvel, 8″x10″ watercolor on paper

After the success of Thirteen, a lovely patron suggested that Captain Marvel’s uniform might do well with the same treatment, and I couldn’t help but agree.

Dark red and navy blue hide under the soft pattering rain of brighter colors, giving depth to the fields of rich color. Bright metallic golds layer over softer burnt orange in a familiar pattern, a bit less abstract than the Doctor’s sweater but still with that feeling of calling up an idea as much as a character or film.

What do you marvel at, my darling readers?

Sunset Haze

Monday, July 8th, 2019

Sunset Haze by Amy Crook, a watercolor painting of trees and a flight of birds silhouetted against the sun

Sunset Haze, 7″x5″ watercolor on paper

It wouldn’t be me if there wasn’t some kind of horizons painting with a fading sunset, flying birds, and silhouetted trees.

I went for a different sort of tree this time, though I couldn’t tell you what kind, and some sea birds for variety as well. The sun is a red haze just vanishing below the horizon, ruddy against the warm buff color of the paper itself.

A tiny bit of exotic warmth for those days the AC is turned to 11 and one is missing the summers of old.

Above, you can see some smudgy foliage and tiny birds against the buff-orange sunset sky. Below, the painting is in a frame, like a window into some other, more tropical reality.

The same patient patron who got the last commission snuck in for a second spot and got her dream pairing drawn! Castiel and Dean Winchester from Supernatural gaze with giant, loving eyes at each other, blushes in full force and their traditional costumes from the show in place. Dean’s even got his necklace, and Cas his wings.
