My eye is ought to the "spider" in the lower right corner quite often. This is due to placement and the tendrils which seem to point to it. Some further refinement here perhaps? I think another thing that would strengthen the work in if you did a thin wash over the negative space, perhaps ...

If you had not said that it was about going from darkness to light I would have thought the opposite. To me it seems the fihure is being sucked into the darkness. One big reason for this is the position of arms in legs, seems to be thrashing around.

The whole head is in sharp contrast, yet the hair is solid white; maybe some subtle shading in the hair. The shading on the cheek looks darker than it should be, maybe add in some secondary lights to the shadow area here, or lighten the whole area? Another thing I noticed is that if you divide the f...

Color is what painting is all about. And this work has a lot of color. And thier is much action here. Would need to look it over a while to start to get a feel for it. And will come back to it form time to time. What is giclee? And how large is this work? A Giclee is a modern method of reproduction...

Pricing Giclees

What are the prices you place on your Giclees?

Mine are on the highest quality Arches archival paper and are rendered and printed by very well known and reputable firms. I have them available for $400, and was curious how this rates with other art of similar quality?

Pro and Con of Varnishing

To Varnish, or not to Varnish, that is the question.

I have heard that varnishing is a good way to add a protective layer on a finished work but have also heard of negative effects popping up in the long term. Anyone got some advice?

Rotate 90 degrees clockwise and the transition doesn't seem as harsh. The way it is presented creates a tension/pressure as the mass of warm color pours over the cool blue. Have you tried to use this technique to represent figurative subjects instead of staying in the abstract? I have attached an im...

Physical properties for pigments.

In time, through all our efforts, I hope to turn this page into a wealth of knowledge on some of the nitty-gritty details of pigments. I have a good deal of notes on many pigments which I will soon post to this page, but in the meantime I was looking for some help with the pigments listed below. Loo...

Riddle of the Sphinx

"What animal goes on four legs in the morning? Two legs at noon? and three legs in the evening?"

This is a very old riddle. Do you know the answer?

If so, do you know the answer behind the answer?

This is so easy to spot. It is rather obvious that the small own bird on the animals back is a Figaneum strapidous , which as is well known, does not live on the African plains. It is well established that this bird only lives in Paint Lick, Kentucky, feeds on Blasterberry Trees, and has a life span...

A couple of things. First, maybe I'm just being snobby, but I see the words 'Modern Art' as synonymous with 'Lazy Art'. True, some moderen art has made amazing statements, but once those are proclaimed how long can we sound the same horn. Doing splatter painting or color-field painting for 60 years ...

I don't see fear, sex, suffering, rapists, scared women, or dancers. I see scribbles and dots, black, white, and grey. But don't you see....that is what makes this kind of work so great. It allows us freedom to imagine, gives us the space to be Creators. For instance, when you look at a traditional ...

I myself love working with charcoal. If you are new to the material I'd say you are off to running start. Just stick with it. When I first started using charcoal I thought it was impossible. But I just keep plugging away at it. I only recently joined this site so i don't have many charcoals posted y...

The eye begins on the green triangle formed by the grass between the flowers. The children move our eye up over the fence where it is picked up by the cedar trees, thus moving us to the house. The contrasts made between the reds and greens assists us in this movement. One could say that the colors a...

Looking at your pics reminded me of a funhouse mirror which gave me an idea I will share with you. In these works I guess you start with a normal picture, and then morph it it different shapes. Well, what if you worked in reverse. For instance, take a funhouse mirror, or even a shiny chrome bumber, ...
