new paintings

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.

Photos for new work

These photos are an example of some of the images I am using for new paintings. They come from a collection of photos taken by my brother Jason on a recent visit to Japan.
Painting from another persons' photos is a first for me and the results are exciting (I think). These new paintings will be part of the next exhibition in Feb.
