Here is my leap back into traditional mediums. I started it as just a straight acrylic painting, but when I went to Dick Blick to pick up some more art supplies I was inspired by some of the papers they had there. So, I switched up my game plan and made a mixed media piece. It’s torn paper and acrylic paint on canvas. I loved the results I got from this experiment and I’m turning in into a series based on light, ie dawn, dusk, night, and noon.
This week I just downloaded an app for my iPad and iPhone called Zen Brush. It’s really slick and I’ve been playing around, just trying to get a feel for it, and I’ve been incredibly impressed with my preliminary results. I can’t wait to see what I am really capable of using this tool.
This is a sculpture I made of a Viking character that I created name Olaf Hauskludson. He was sculpted using epoxy putty and Sculpy, and painted with acrylics. I really pushed the balance of sculpture by lifting most of the energy and weight up off the base and into the air. I think this created a very nice dynamic piece. I’m glad to have him back home from being displayed at SCAD-Atlanta.
