This panel continues my “Earth Series”panels, it is 4′ x 4′ painted in acrylic, gilded with dutch metal, and patinated.
I continue with my exploration of emergence, evolution, and entropy.
When finishing a panel, because they are very heavy, the panel needs to be braced, edges tidied up, and the back to be cleaned and painted. I find this aspect very much a chore but a necessary one. I have endless lists, such as buy needed equipment, brushes, wood glue, scalpel blades, sand paper, and…………… next on the list, keep up with blog, and posts, and other media networking stuff, and not even mentioning sourcing display frames, etc. I shall stop now as I feel a scream coming.
This panel is a bit of a departure from my other work, I have tried to illustrate by texture the types of rock surface. I t is not finished yet but is well on the way. The title “Chasm” is self explanatory.
Below is a selection of close ups of texture detail. This is still a work in progress.
I am not proud of the fact that my studio is still an unmitigated mess, but when I work, I take no prisoners, its head down, and everything to hand. I rather pour blame on the Lilliputian proportions of my studio. It makes me somewhat envious of artists who work on a small scale, or things that are less inclined to mess. I think I might have to reorganize, move out some office stuff and books. Yep! its a plan. I am just putting finishing touches to several pieces, and then I will share the images, till then here’s another image of my tip.
