They are painted on what is becoming my standard size of 1200 x 900 sheets of Masonite with pine backing frames. Both are acrylic and Indian ink (no titles yet).
I am enjoying being in the space between abstract and representational painting. This painting also has the original photograph playing a big role in the representation with silhouette and poster realism.
The sky blue is also becoming a bit of a standard, although it is a little different every time. Pale blue is such an inviting colour. I discovered this blue when doing paintings for Maxwell's bedroom.... its such a boy colour! It should be noted that I also use a lot of pink.

This painting was made from two photographs. One of a retail clothing store and one of Mt. Fuji in Japan. Both photos were taken by Jason. I have used light pastel colours and thick, mat acrylic mixed with a lot of gesso. The result is powdery, delicate surface with sharp definition.
The painting is yet to be named, 900 x 1200 on Masonite
This painting is made from more different photos than I can remember. It has been a work in progress for about a year. Again, sharp lines are the key along with attention to balance and colour.
Also yet to be named 900 x 1200 acrylic and ink on ply wood.
