Its It’s a lovely morning to be stuck in traffic in the cab of a 5 ton. Riding to locations is actually the best part of set dec, a precious few moments of sitting in air conditioning even stealing a nap. No naps for me though (yet) cause I need to share my WIP with you!
I’ve started (another) new project, but this time I’m trying to approach it differently. I’m writing a –get this– PLAN for my execution. So here’s what I got so far:
- Make a drawing
- Trace to canvas
- Blue turquoise underpainting with acrylic
- Let dry and coat with mat medium
- Strategically fill parts with oil paint, face and arms with color allow underpainting to show through in chair, tattoo and partially through clothes
- Let dry
Now here’s the interesting experimental part:
- Stretch a new canvas
- Do an acrylic underpainting in emeralds and blues and umber
- Collage the paintings
I know crazy. I finally have a vision and I can see how it ties into my idea of exploring self established culture. It took a long time but I’m starting to feel good about art again. I have purpose and creativity and I can do the thing!!! Well I can do it when I get another day off. Till next time, stay hydrated y’all:!
