lined up and face it

Experimental work to demonstrate drawing by revealing colours underneath, in contrast to laying down marks, be that in colour or pen or graphite or whatever. Oil paint is ideal for this as it dries very slowly, so one can work and rework if necessary, like those toys where you can draw and shake to remove... great fun. The light kept bouncing off the picture.. black is hard to photograph properly. Again I used the same method as above but used the flat chisel blender to grade the colour and manipulate the light. These works are small 12" x 12" stretched canvas and the colour extends around the sides. It's ready to hang. Thanks for looking at my blog! ..e^)

I just wanted to let you know about a new forum for artists as well as musicians, fashion designers, and filmmakers, http://www.PutItOn.com. As an artist I think that the mission is really great. The site gives you a free gigabyte of space for portfolio, there is no commission taken for sales, audio and visual works can been streamed in their entirety, you can create live personal broadcasts for your followers, and anything you write will be translated into 10 languages. So check it out!
