I am watching/ reading the following at present and they are helping me realise that my artwork needs to be darker with a much bolder use of shadows and abstracted content.
The Seven Basic Plots: Why We Tell Stories by Christopher Booker 2005
The Visual Story: Creating the Visual Structure of Film, TV and Digital Media
by Bruce Block 2007
Visions of Light - The Art of Cinematography 1992 DVD
Thanks to Matt Horan for your advice on these. My artwork has to change. Painting with light some might call it. I have to think about the camera angles, framing and mood. Black skies, rainy days, over exposure and steady camera movements.
