MAKING

Two buttons, one penny, a feather's shaft (calamus), a walnut shell, on dark background with iPhone shadow - on top of a larger photograph taken in late evening, when the moon was rising, through the trees, 2 days after a full moon (so, not quite round).
One author. Two photographs, one author. One photograph, one (in the manner of a) painting – two authors.  Buttons and penny have eyes in common.


RAINBOW,RAFT, SWIMMERS: painted sketch with mineral pigments partially by memory immediately after visiting the beach, using sketches as references, such as the sketch on the left.  nonacademic.  started summer 2006(? to verify).

 

RAINBOW BY THE CHANNEL: sketch in pencil.  non-academic.  (used also for a digital photography montage made for an academic assignment, in an academic setting  – much of the photoshop work was made at school, while learning some photoshop).

THE DEER: oil sketch, nonacademic.

 

 

oil painting of covered bridge with fish, fishermen, and an American flag
Ameiurus nebulosus. Many Years Since. (nonacademic, Oil on Canvas).

BRIDGE AND TWO BOYS FISHING:

FIELD ABOVE A RIVER VALLEY: Academic (the print), workshop (glass painting from sketches for the print) and nonacademic oil painting sketch. 

 

SKETCHES – AS PORTRAITS, AND AS SKETCHES FOR OTHER PAINTINGS -such as Swimmers and Bathers, and thinkers.

Oil Sketch of man: Academic.  The painting on the left was and painted only when this individual was present (painted with a focus on shadows and light).

The painting on the right, is a digitally altered image of the original.  Photoshop rather than paint has been used to add translucent layers.  Something of vibrancy has been lost in the photoshopped image (on the right).  Something though is also gained by adding final for the most part single-color layers to the image,, adding coherency, and for example,  picking up the blue of the background.

Note on Working with layers in paint:  Painted swatches while painting on canvas, if adding translucent painted layers later, might be very valuable works towards a final painting – and they themselves could be fun small paintings.
