A final post for 2006... The underpainting is very close to being done which brings me to the beginning of the actual painting, so to speak. Quite scary, actually. Handling fully loaded brushes and color is a more difficult process than applying washes for an underpainting... I just keep telling myself I can do it...

Pieter Bruegel - my painting God! ... along with Francis Bacon. Hard to reconcile the two, but I'm working on it...

Going to start on the Juggler. I did a quick sketch to get a sense of him before painting...

This is great stuff. Pretty bizarre motif hehe. I think that the way the painting is in its current stage looks very promising. The digital color sketch doesn't appeal to me quite as much because of the saturated yellowish green used in the grass in the middle and up on the roadside is overpowering everything else in the image.

I think the right-side trees look so much better in the oil version by the way Smile

you know, there's a very nice, subtle look to the tones you have down now that I much prefer to the colour sketch you posted before. I hope you don't lose the freshness and airiness you've got now as you work on it.

nice details eyewoo, but IMO the black smoke in the background shoul be brighter... it disturbs the whole composition. You can see it best in the thumbnail...

Thanks for the comment, Neff...

The entire lower part of the painting is still just light under[painting. It will be much darker when finished. I'm betting that will balance out the dark smoke, but... if not... then I'll make some changes. This is definitely a WIP. Even though there is no Ctrl Z, nothing is written in stone just yet... Smile

Tomasis ... yeah... Bacon... He does sit right at the top of my favorites list along with Bruegel.

Doing some rock studies before tackling the big subterranean rock that has pushed up to the surface, destroying part of a building.

This is a study of the subterranean rock block that has pushed to the surface.

aside from the obvious technical expression (the abrupt, almost Escheresque alterations of perspective leap first to mind), it is the nature of the content that takes my breath away.

when is this story? where?

people really do function at the whim of myth... and not the other way around, as we would like to believe.

i hope to hell you make a lot of money doing this.

Well... no money for this sort of thing yet. But my hope is the same as yours... one day, eh!

I changed the little guy center right to this.




a close up on the detail...


The rock wall is next...

I stopped by the Penna. Academy of Fine Arts in Philadelphia to see the Daniel Garber exhibition in the main gallery on the second floor. As I was leaving, I got sidetracked by the first floor small one room gallery. There was an exhibition of Laylah Ali's drawings. I had not heard of her. I was stunned...

Viewing her ink drawings brought me back to an earlier time in my life when I was drawing similarly. But at that time I was simply to young to be able understand it or deal with it properly.

In a way that may be hard to fathom, Ali's drawings remind me of one of my art gods, Francis Bacon. Her pictures strike me the same way with the same quiet gut power.

So... I'm now wrestling with how I might transform my painting style or rediscover and continue with a style that led me into a brick wall so many years ago. I am going to shelve the current version of this large painting I've been working on since last November - "The Irreverant Rapture," - and start anew... same theme, new style, better understanding of oil paint...

Here are some characters that may show up in the new composition...
