Boomerang, Abstract Painting

Beginning with graphite and grey gesso as an underpainting this expressive portrait emerges in an explosion of color. When this piece was done, as usual, I kept it on the easel or a few days. When ever I caught myself gazing at it, I seemed to be drawn into it, then thrust out only to find the process repeating itself, like a boomerang! There is a coat of archival varnish applied to enhance the texture and color. Painting is on gallery wrap canvas with sides painted; arrives ready to hang.”

Watercolor….

….a medium that I tend to resist. I’m really intimidated by process but am going to give it my best efforts. I am not a realistic painter, however, think for a learning process, and getting a feel for the technique, it’s probably a good idea to go there for now (as much as possible) until I get a better skill set.

If you can recognize the subject, then I am making some progress

Seated Nude….

on a dark background. The first layers of paint create a dark background. Before the acrylic paint is dry an indication of the figure pose is brushed on using a red shade. After that I start wiping out the figure to define light and shadow. Last step is to add finishing touches to the subject.

This Oil and Cold Wax painting began with slathering on three seperate layers of paint to create body, texture and depth using scrapers and palette knives and mark making tools. The final layer (below) reveals the figure and more values.
