Study & Finish

 "Two Deer, study for The Reunion."  11" x 11, graphite & oil on mylar.


The top image is a preliminary study done for the painting titled " The Reunion," a 30"x30" on canvas.  In this particular case I have worked on mylar, a translucent plastic surface, that lends itself nicely to the touch of oil paint.  The surface responds to all manner of medium but in this study my choices were graphite and oil.  The combination allowed me to bridge the divide between the monochromatic graphite pencil and not go as far as a full blown oil painting.  It was this quality found in between the mediums that resulted in a newness of materiality and results.  A charm was created independent of either.   This painting and others can be viewed at Robert Lange Studios till the end of the month.  Jump on over and look through the show.

In addition to the more narrative work I also have a series of still-lifes that continue to enrich my painting practice.  They were initially started as a means of a break between larger paintings to work from life and expand my visual approach.  They've taken on a life of their own.  So much so that I had a nice write up by a collector/galleryist/designer from Toronto, Canada.  The author is discussing what she looks for in buying artwork and has three principles when considering a purchase. Nice personal account that can shed light on the word of art and commerce. Good food for thought. Here

Thank you all for leaving your thoughts in the comments section. I'm terrible at responding to each but that doesn't mean they aren't greatly respected because they are.  As always drop me a line if you have any questions.

Till next time.
