I’m takin’ a break from working on these portraits today because of the cold here in the garage-studio but thought I should share what I’m up to… I am enjoying the evolution of these works. They started out pretty raw… a monochromatic Acrylic and had a powerful and direct mood but now I’m problem-solving by layering charcoal and oil.
I stopped painting on canvas in 08 because panels offered a better support for tape painting and super detailed linework. I have enjoyed reigniting the flame… canvas is bouncy, accepts wash layers nicely because of all of the little crevices and is very lightweight in opposition to the panels I’m workin’ with. Hope you’re having a great stress free holiday-stravaganza!
