Oil on Canvas
To purchase, email me with the title in the subject line.
Another piece from my new set, Modern Conveniences. I do these pieces in layers. I start with the colored background, which I lay on very thin and texturize it with a rag or even my hand. Once that layer dries, I sketch the entire painting out in one color- in this case, brown. Once I am happy with the layout, I let that layer dry and then add a layer of color and detail. In some pieces, the original drawing is almost totally covered. In others, like this one, much of the original sketch remains. Someday soon if I remember, I will photograph the various layers as they are completed.
