ABSTRACTION / MODERN
At the Convention (2018)
Watercolors and Acrylics on paper
Artist comment - An imaginary gathering or people that I have known conversing with different versions of me from over the years.
How it was done - This started with a graphite sketch. Then the figures were developed using watercolors. I could not get the intensity I wanted using watercolors for the background so I used acrylics.
Waiting for the Sun (2018)
A group of people waiting for the sun. Perhaps it is the hope of sunrise or perhaps it is the conclusion of sunset.
How it was done - - Watercolors on dry 140 lbs cold press paper. No preliminary sketch other than for the shape of the sun. The horizon line is water color pencil.
