Painting Demo GIF
This GIF is a demonstration of the process I used to create the painting "Wood, Nautilus & Rubber Band Ball."
For this particular project I used Ken Davies' method of painting from his book "Sharp-Focus Still Lifes" which includes a drawing, a wash-in layer, a block-in layer, and detail layers. I also employed the sight-size method.
The painting was executed on a primed wooden panel in 2016 and the dimensions are 20X16 inches.
I was extremely inspired by the shapes of the various natural and man-made objects interacting in this set up and by their cool and warm tones. I took the painterly liberty of enhancing the blue tint in the wall to exaggerate the contrasting colors and to add to the feeling of the final painting.
