Sorry, but I am getting caught up here. The older works (and some of these while the were still in progress) are here: https://elevenimages.wordpress.com/2016/01/06/eleven-images-new-work-2016/
As always, if you’d like to inquire about the pieces here (or any other pieces on the site not marked NFS, of course) simple e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Meanwhile, here’s what I have been up to since the first of the year:
Began color-blocking a new piece:
A little more minimalist that what I generally do, but so far I like how this one has started, quite a lot.
To finish out this piece, my feeling was a couple of touches were needed, to balance the image with a cool-ish color, but very subtle so as not to change the over-all tonal palette of the image. I think I got what I was looking for with this piece.
New works in progress. It’s been a while since I have done anything very large. A lot of my recent work been with 12″ x 12″ canvases, and 8″ x 12″. I decided I need to scale up, and I put three 16″ x 20″ canvas together for a total dimension of 20″ x 48″. Did the color blocking, and I have begun to move into building up the paint.
This has been a slow practice in building color, at first glance, it may look like little has changed since the first image, but several more hours of building color have now gone into this one:
Spent some time on this one:
This piece came together quickly, I will do a little cleaning the image up, but likely, it will be 90% done as of this image:
This piece may be done –I’m still deciding.
Began color-blocking on a new piece:
New work, first sitting. A couple artist friends have suggested a very high-gloss varnish for this piece. As a result, I am probably going to clean up this image only slightly, –leaving the image mostly unchanged– and experiment with some varnishes. Stay tuned as I develop that process, I’ll be updating as this one is finished:
Working on new pieces this morning, this was the first sitting with this one.
Some of the first new pieces this year:
This one is shaping up to be a recent personal favorite, it’s name however, remain elusive.
Nearing done, but I may still work on it some more. Right now it’s drying on my easel.
…and on the second easel:
Still working on this one:
This one goes to the done-pile (tweaked a bit, but here):
