details from glaze medium paintings

Friday, 20 February 2015

working on prismatic neutral greys,
 I think Atkinson Grimshaw's room is making me paint moonlight, 
especially the green one . Continuing theme of the room, 
working through the memory shapes of a room.

oil glaze medium experiments. 
Trying to create depth, density, glowing colours.

Saturday, 7 February 2015

working in an old sketchbook from 2 years ago, I had begun researching puppets with a view to making some and got as far as making maquettes in white stoneware and porcelain, but the idea never progressed. lookingat the book i was going to tea out the pages but I thought perhaps I can use these again and began some Grisaille underpaintings on top of the photocopies, using black acrylics and gesso. I am really pleased with the developments. Ill take some further with oil medium glazing. 

themes of light and shade, light in darkness
working on textures, gesso ground and then pure graphite and rubbing out, 
water soluble graphite. The last one is part of the room series.
