Some Recent Progress
Here are some details of the current work. The second pic shows at left the underdrawing of what will be a part of a cathedral. The goal is to complete this work by early summer.
Here you can see some of the hundreds of pilings that are being added which will eventually support the main structures which I’m working on now. Using blueprints, the idea is to mimic in a relatively accurate way the construction of sections of a large gravity dock such that are found on the Great Lakes.
Some Developing Textures on the New Work
4′ wide by 6′ tall on canvas. Another 3D work which will incorporate built wooden structures based on industrial scale docks as once found on Lake Superior. I’m utilizing hundred-year-old blueprints for their construction. This work will focus on time and to some extent, cycles.
The Carnival, completed
Ruining and Dressing the Dock
As you can see, I burned down a section of the structure and have begun to “dress” or decorate it with streamers and tags. Things will change considerably as I reach the end of this painting.
Experimenting with a Smoke Bomb
Generally it would be a good idea to do this BEFORE painting, but I didn’t think of it till later. This is step one for establishing a backdrop.
The new painting is nearing completion. Next will be the 3D element which is mostly prepared and ready to be fixed to the canvas.
