elaborate doodles 2008
conte & oil on canvas series
My current series of paintings, "Elaborate Doodles," begins with Sharpie drawings rendered in an automatic process that I then articulate with details and patterns. I use these drawings as a basis for the paintings by re-drawing them onto primed canvas with conte crayon then fixing the conte to the canvas with brushed linseed oil. This creates a wash from the conte but also leaves the original line visible. I then apply oil paint with a small brush over the existing lines and into the background as the painting directs me.
acrylic and sharpie series
I am also concurrently working on some colorful "Elaborate Doodles," which vary some from the mono-chromatic pieces. These colorized doodles begin directly on the canvas as a sharpie drawing. Acrylic paint is then applied.
