A couple of drawings from a figure drawing session. I don't have much to comment on today but I will leave with a thought, "Space travel will not be a technological revolution, it will be a sociological revolution." Brad
A few of my prints. From top to bottom: 'Roadhouse', 6 color reduction linocut, 'Reclining Nude', engraving with plate rollup. This print is printed with Akua Intaglio ink which is what I'm using now. 'Reading', 2 color linocut. '1918', linocut with tempera overprint.
This is a painting of my grandfather from his service photo made when when he served in WWI. I have had very good response to the painting and am thinking of a series based on it. The post by Artslice featuring interiors inspired me. The painting is executed in tempera, poster paint, on a gessoed panel. I sprayed the tempera with One-Shot shellac and it kills the chalkiness making the colors pop. I then glazed it with alkyd medium and a bit of oil paint for tint. I'm not sure about the archival quality of the technique but would like to hear any ideas about it.
This is a small painting based on a school picture. The teacher is my aunt and the year is c.1933. I'm posting it because I came art late in life. In middle age i decided to return to school for a degree. Yesterday at 5:04 PM EST. I emailed my very last final essay. At age 58 I now have a degree in fine art with a concentration in painting and printmaking. It's been a long road but I have finally finished.
Thanks for the kind word on my previous posts. I'm new to this blogging thing thing and am trying to find my way around so, please be patient with me. This is a painting that had as its inspiration a line from the poem 'Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird' by Wallace
My offering today is a painting of a figure that I executed in Krylon on paper. It was then worked with oil pastels. The size is eighteen by twenty-four. The title is 'Leda' and is from a figure drawing. the model just happened to be standing in front of a plastic swan.
