After discussions with peers I began considering how I could prolong the viewers engagement with my paintings. My response was to try and turn some of them into animations, by subtly moving icons or whole layers I am attempting to create more transitory images. These experiments are at an early stage and so are currently very crude. For now I have been using the timeline function within photoshop to produce them. At the moment I feel they are far to obvious, I want to make the transitions smoother and more gentle so that the eye is forced to search the image to detect how the the changes are happening.
