This is a straight photograph, as seen in lower Manhattan. I just love the colors and patterns in this image. I started to collage it with another but decided I like it as is. Thanks for visiting!
This is a very simple image I created with a stencil to honor Street Art. I have a photograph of this figure, from the street in black against a white brick wall. I wanted to do the opposite and appropriate the character in white against the raw wood of the base. I did coat the ground with four layers of wax medium, fused between each layer with the heat gun before taping the stencil to the piece. I used a titanium white oil stick to color in the stencil, fused it lightly, then let it sit for a while to cool and dry. Finally, the piece was coated with clear wax medium to seal the image.
I knew I wouldn't make it to the studio today because of the snow forecast so this was created in my kitchen with a suitcase full of materials and tools. Thanks for visiting!
