I thought you might like to see my studio painting process. To document, I took each picture after 5 hours/one day’s work over about 10 days.
I associate this color with “environmental protection” or “safety”, obnoxious enough to make you forget about relaxation as you attempt to enjoy whatever “environment” you are (protecting yourself) in. Think hunting season and orange vests. Think orange nets that cordon off flood zones etc.
Anyway, I found my orange, PO43 (Pigment-Orange #43)
Toned the canvas. I am working on oil primed linen. It is wonderful!!
Darks for Drama.
Whoa, whoa, whoa..I am seeing cartoon faces and little stick people, got to get through the”schizo” phase of the process. Got to occupy this place. Must take big leap of faith and obliterate. Such is the process.
Now we’re cookin. So, it may look really crazy, but it actually “feels” much better (to me). Painting is all about feeling.
Now, we’ll see if they let this one in…
Ye-haw! We are in. Go see this surreal orange landscape at The Durango Arts Center in Durango, Southwest Colorado (closed Sun and Mon). The show is up until September 20, 2015.
