Fabled City… great title; love the smooth sultry rose pinks with the burnt umber naples yellow. I am very very curious on this one!! Did this one evolve and emerge? or did you have a vision/thought an idea from somewhere? Where? How did this painting, come to be Maurice? Thank you! Debi
Thanks Debi ! I started this series of 4’x6′ paintings with this plan. Viewing photos of all my paintings from the last 15 years, I selected ones that I thought would be right as an inspiration for enlarging. I would make an 8×10 print of the original, hang it next to the canvas, and use it as a color comparison, not trying to replicate the paintings, but just to give me a reference. First step, using a 2″ brush, involved covering the white canvas with paint, mixing on the canvas instead of the palette. Then I blended with a 4″ blender, and then, seeing that more blending was necessary, I used an 8″putty knife to smooth and blend. I really went out of my comfort zone, in color and texture, and still not sure what will happen in the next week or so. Any suggestions?
this is Fascinating. I like hearing from the artist – how they did it. what their mood, and motivation was. ie what was in their head!
I’m not much into listening to what someone else ‘thinks’ the artist was thinking. LOL Thank you very much Maurice. No suggestions. zip. I love it. 🙂
I really enjoy a conversation with another artist, one who understands the creative process. Thanks for being there when I need to talk.
hi Maurice, my pleasure 🙂 any time. I see in your paintings…. ‘resonation’ for lack of a better word. I seem to hear, and feel some, of them, in the sense I do my own. They are ‘familiar’ – odd isn’t it?!
I think we definitely share a common vision, viewed from opposite sides of the earth, but artistically similar. It’s so nice to have a sole-mate !!!
yes, Vision is the word. and definitely a similiar artistic vision! 🙂 wishing you a great New Years Maurice, cheers, Debi
My wishes for a great year are returned to you, and may we continue to share our common vision for many more years !!!
thank you 🙂
Oh, this is beautifully stirring! I’d love to see it in its full glory.
Karen, the painting is 6 foot wide, should really be seen in person.
I see it holding its magic and mystery already.. 🙂
