Exploration studies with ‘John Wayne’ characterPosted: December 29, 2013
Here I have explored with paint upon photographs. The paint acting in a similar way to the glasses, which is essentially a prop to conceal human floors.
This is the outcome, I then focused on this covering element. I produced two oil pastel studies of the piece above.
I found the effect in which I laid the paper with white spirit before I applied the oil pastel was more successful. It appears more distinguished the other study has become quite bland and blurred in a sense. Here are the other results.
I put some areas of acrylic paint after the oil pastel to allow the subject to come to the surface. The acrylic has an interesting effect with white spirit, the two can’t interact with each other.
