No time to paint today. Here is a sketch of a person who is not feeling very well at all.
I began this study with Kandinsky’s work in mind. I wanted to create a visual relationship between crisp geometric shapes, circles and lines and some kind of formlessness. I didn’t get very far before I ran out of ideas. The organizing principle of this piece (or disorganizing principle) is the disconnection between line that could […]
Today’s watercolor study is a preliminary sketch of the projection of ideas through an atmosphere of confusion. That was my intention. I need to execute many more sketches to perfect the visual expression of this motif.
I have visited one newly refurbished parking lot several times in the past few weeks. The newly painted lines, concrete surface and rubberized pedestrian safety mats offer me, as a street photographer, the opportunity to design interesting photographs. The proximity and arrangement of these parking lot constituents, as I framed them, became geometric visual elements […]
Can anyone guess the movie I’m trying to watch here?
I’m not exactly sure how the round water valve cover came to be surrounded by an oval. It doesn’t look like a machine-made cut. I like this photo for this mystery and that it could be a Ptolemaic schematic in which the earth is the center of everything.
Some of the inspiration for this image comes from a dream. All I can remember that there was a lot of Dracula imagery…
I stumbled on this parking lot space delimiter by accident the other day. It was separating a handicapped space from an area reserved for low-emission vehicles. It was very thoughtful of the designer to specify two colors: blue for handicapped and white for fuel efficiency. This would give poor parkers (see Poor Parkers post) an […]
I integrated alcohol marker curves with broad expanses of watercolor in this study. It reminds me of a jellyfish with trailing tangles.
I used rough paper for this composition. So far it is just a background. I’ve got some thinking to do before I propose an appropriate foreground befitting such a textured surface.
