I have started a new painting. Well, actually, it has been started for a couple months now. One of the art shows in Boston that I have participated in has a unique slant: it’s a ‘process’ show. An artist will show one painting alongside of all the sketches and studies that led up to it. Most paintings are like icebergs, with ninety percent of the work process hidden. I am going to attempt to do the same thing on my blog with this painting (titled “Lovecraft Birdcage”).
This first image is a 11″ x 14″ black and white charcoal sketch:
the next image is a smaller (8″ x 11″) color study, to find harmonious colors.
The final painting will be oil on canvas, approximately 48″ x 72″.
More to come…
