No, not the painting kind.
I began with a wash of cerulean blue. This blue is very light, and it takes a lot of pigment to cover a given area (this may be a function of the particular brand of watercolor, though). I applied masking frisket on top of that layer and added a flourish with a can of compressed […]
This one was fun. I used a compass to draw the overlapping circles and a triangle to draw the spikes on the mace balls. I penned the two converging lines and their parallels. I used latex frisket to draw the squiggles and to mask against the blues. I like the cartoonish quality of this work.
I didn’t hear any noises coming from the dumpster, so I imagine the bicycle owner just stepped away, or was unable to dispose of the ride in any other way than abandonment.
For this layered abstract, I used ink and latex frisket. I applied the mask over some of the painted areas. Fortunately, the paint stayed in place when I removed the dried resist material. I outlined some of the latex traces with ink, since I wasn’t sure if the subsequent washes would provide enough contrast to show […]
Yesterday I found a lost Mondrian. I thought it might be worthwhile to show you where I discovered it. Fortunately I recognized it, even though it was mounted at a severe angle.
I was fortunate to have found another ‘lost’ Mondrian, the elusive Composition 332.
I began with thin applications of liquid latex masking fluid. Before I knew it, I had covered the entire sheet of watercolor paper with lines and beads of latex. After it dried, I divided the paper, coloring the top portion with Prussian blue and the bottom with quinacridone burnt orange. I wanted to them to merge […]
I found this tree hiding in the bushes.
I am beginning to like working with layers. It is a bit of a cop out in terms of design, since one never knows with certainty what the next tier will add or subtract from another. Certainly working with a computer photo editor allows the artist to create layers that can be superimposed without affecting the […]
