Acrylic on Paper

1 Dec

A new piece. Charcoaled out the lines then painted them in black. Fed color in slowly working a fairly limited palette.

This is my first ever attempt employing the use of only a palette knife. I have labored over this one for many hours until the final stroke of the knife.

I have been painting but not posting, for a very long time. I continue experimenting mostly with acrylic on paper. This work is 16″ x 20″ & varnished with a matte finish. Feels good to have something I feel is worthy of posting. Nice to be back!

A new acrylic on paper.  Not sure what this is exactly or what it conveys.  Feels a little ethereal.  I loved the way the colors came together.

Haring Homage (Untitled 1620-20) (2015)

Keith Haring‘s work has always delighted and inspired me.  I love his use of color and thick black line.  There is a clean, simplicity to his often searing social commentary.  His work is like a soft hammer, drawing you in and then capturing your attention & rattling your sensibilities.  This work has no particular agenda but I created it mindful of Haring’s techniques and use of color.

Restricted this piece to using only green, white, brown, and black.  I am really pleased with the variety of hues that emerged.

Monochrome (1620-18) (2015)

Monochrome (1620-18).edd.11.18.2015

Just a fun, new abstract piece.  Love playing with monochromatic colors.  A bit of an homage to Picasso, especially his love for the black line.

Arcs & Angles (2015)

I decided to change things up on this one a bit.  Typically bold black lines tend to dominate my work.  This time I wanted to see how it would look to let bold white lines take the stage.  I have to say I had so much fun working with the white lines.  I recently bought two rolls of packing paper.  One is this tan color and the other pure white.  I feel like the acrylics I am currently working with adhere very well to this paper.  I have 80 linear feet of rolled paper to create with and I cannot wait!
