Studio #121617

Making some studies for my next painting. This is a change of colour and mood from my recent work.. I am looking at the atmosphere in a different way and seeing where it goes.

I am working off this quick sketch I did yesterday out in on a hike. I am also mixing in different elements from video and pictures I took on my phone for brief reference. The colours and movement in the landscape are so vibrant these past few days 
  

Something From the Past

Something from the past.. A sketch I did last year from memory. I photographed it using a shallow depth of field f2.8 on my camera lens. Then I uploaded it to my computer and manipulated it with some textured layering on photoshop. The original drawing was a gift to my brother for his civil partnership wedding.
I hadn’t sketched like that in a long time and it was very grounding for me at the time. I have a love for trees, they make me feel protected in a way, they are like piers to me, older and wiser. Monumental survivors..

Study For Painting : : March 15 

I love sketching with graphite, it allows a balance of freedom and control which is similar to charcoal. This is a sketch I did for painting in progress. Inspired by the eeie atmosphere of the landscape and woods I had walked a few days ago. I felt a strange empathy with my surroundings. 

 

Studies

Studies in oils on stretched paper that I incorporate into some of my paintings. I would abstract these further in the painting or just use as reference to evoke the narrative in the work. Sometimes I am satisfied enough with them as sketched and move just move on to the next.
