Oil on Canvas  8″x10″

Another gestural oil, painted over a piece that didn’t work.  Some surprising textures arise from the sacrificed piece.

Intention

Intention began as an Illustration Friday prompt.   It didn’t take long to realize that what I was making was decidedly not an illustration. My intention-derailed.  I should back up and mention that Intention started as a watercolor, though not a good watercolor.   I scanned it and finished painting digitally.  So much for my initial intention.  Next, I felt that the white space fell flat.  I needed some texture, so I dug through photo textures I create for this purpose.  I’m always drawn to fabric, and there in the reference were three interesting images to layer over the painting. I couldn’t quite decide, so I created three versions.

Intention vs process:)

Summer Bug Series #2

A little different approach here, but this piece is also inspired by Microcosmos.  The color in the film is glorious, but  I wanted to concentrate on one element at a time, so I went with black and white.  The textures take over here.  I’ve allowed the tree to define the texture.  I made a rubbing with a charcoal pencil over the stone blocks that make up my patio.  The result is the grungy almost embossed feel of the trees juxtaposed with the flat smooth insects.  More to come.

New Digital Painting

I’ve played with a single scanned textural element in an other wise all digital painting.  In this case, you guessed it, it’s the mountain. I created it with acrylics on watercolor paper, scanned it and popped it into this digital painting.

This “Mountaintop” piece is available as an 11″x 14″ high quality print.
