Here are a few works in progress. My current paintings are based on my new found fondness of using dots and “pulls” in my work. My new process involves:
1. Putting in a contrasting gesso layer
2. Putting in a smooth oil under painting
3. Several layers of dotty color to complete major color
4. Detail work: Still working on figures. No procrastination here ;-)
I am trying the “pulls” of color with figures. My comfort is smooth gradations, but I am trying different methods looking for a looser look. New works will tell. I still look for sharp light and shadow to the point of exaggeration. Exploration is what art is all about :-). Let me know what you think!
As a finishing touch, I include my studio helper Billy.
