Moments in between the layers, and failures
This is a collection of images I took while making some of my paintings. The technique I use involves putting down paint and then wiping it away in order to build up the image. Sometimes of the moments that happen in this process reveal a ghost of the object that doesn't fully exist in the final form, but lives in the layers between the surface and ground.
Sketchbook, tests and mockups
I do material tests, color tests and make mock ups in my sketchbook and photoshop to help guide my decisions about what to paint, scale and display. For a more in-depth look at some of these activities, please look at studio diary PDF, downloadable from my additional content page or below.
