This one goes back some time... I still have a few oldies, which I will slowly get around to posting here.
A humorous scene of my neighbours when I lived in Vancouver, Canada. Quite typical of a Vancouver house.
The paper is thick, about 300lb weight, from the Gandhi co-op industries in India.
My paintings in that period were done on location, without preliminary sketches nor any working lines on the paper. This is paint applied directly on a blank page. The paint is from traditional colour paint sticks ground on stone with water. After all this time the paint looks as bright and fresh as the day I painted the piece.
The close up picture is of higher resolution to be able to get a feel for the texture and brush strokes of the painting.
Take a glimpse into this artist, and how step by step I build my paintings at my ‘building a painting’ and other albums at the following link:
