  • Walk the line Wednesdays: Week 11

    Continuing to examine Paul Klee's famous quote "a drawing is taking a line for a walk", I'll be attempting to challenge myself by adding a drawing a week to this blog, mind you, the idea for me is to keep it as simple as possible, laying down only the lines that are needed to communicate the idea.

    As usual, to see how these mere thumbnail sketches designed to be used for composition & value maps can be instrumental to the success of fully completed painings, check out the Gallery or the Available works pages on this site. Some of these will be developed into studies, others full blown paintings & quite a few left as is, in anticipation of future development. Priorities, right!?

  • Concentricity

    Going through some older flat files and came across this little bit of - 'huh?'.  It was a project that required the use of line - exclusively, to create movement. I opted for a deliberate optical illusion, deceptively simple looking, the measurements and application had to be precisely on point for it to work – resulting in concentric circles leading the eye in/or out of the shape depending on the tilt of the head or angle of view,  it could be both concave and convex.

  • It stands up

    So, while thinking about materials and their lightfastness, I thought I'd pay a visit to an old friend I had worked on in 1994 (they say paintings are never finished - just abandoned). In any case, he held up for the past 24 years with no discernable fading along any part of the spectrum. In fact -as with most Art - it looks even better in person. I can't recall what was used to photograph my work back then. I'll have to make an attempt to get a new photo for comparison. A big thanks and shout out to Len Walbourne for reminding me to always use materials that will stand the test of time.
