Let’s get on with the big reveal…
Whimsical, Colourful, Bright and Vibrant
The title just encapsulates the outcome of this project. It is just dripping with juicy hues, abstract sensations and psychedelic fantasy. But what would you expect from a painting inspired purely by listening to the Beatles — non-stop?
I really felt quite taken back to my youth with this one (no, not quite to the swinging ’60’s — I’m a 70’s baby). There was just so much reminiscence going on with this painting that a bit of child-like play surfaced in the making of this bold artwork.
Compared to the Last
When I put the Radiohead painting up next to this one, I really get a sense of what I’m trying to achieve with this Rock Art project. They couldn’t be more different!

Without Much Ado…
Here is the final product:
Here is that comparison between the Radiohead painting and The Beatles one:
As you can well see, the difference is quite apparent. So there really is something in this whole experiment with painting to different types of music. My curiosity is peaked and I am now really looking forward to doing the rest of this series.
Because Muse has just released their 6th album (2nd law), they are going to be next in line — can’t wait to see what cosmic waves are going to come out of my paint pots this time.
The Title — Help!
Before I sign off, I haven’t come up with a title for this yet. I was wondering if perhaps you could contribute any suggestions you may have that would befit this painting — the title needs to sum it all up.
Please leave your suggestions in the comment section below. Any feedback, critique or just general banter are welcome!
UPDATE: The title is ‘Metamorphic Dilatation’ (the process of changing and expanding)
