A Grab Bag of Progress: Vol. XIV
In no particular order, and with minimal explanation, here are some shots of various projects I have percolating in the studio.
Just laying down some base colors and establishing some early directional movements in the composition base layer.
Add a few more colors and drips (which help to set up some movement...).
Another underwhelming 'start'...
Add a few more colors, and all of a sudden there is some tension between the two warmer color masses (supported by a dull and comparatively cool background)
I've started a couple of canvases with some cut out shapes.
As this one started to come together, I realized that I might have an opportunity to include a mask that has been sitting around in my studio for years. I ripped it off of a much older canvas/piece/composition a long time ago. So I wanted to test it out at the top of the 'sign' element...
...unfortunately it was visually too heavy up there, so it had to go. I am currently trying it out on other pieces.
This one might work...
And I'll close with some images of that tower/sign composition I am trying to bring together.
More to come!
