This one happened on tar paper on the kitchen floor. It’s 3ft x 4ft, chalk pastel. The original photo reference is by Bart Nino.



Process of Creation :-)

The semi-finished product. Scroll down to see a “sketch” from beginning to end…

phase 5

My process….
It’s a slow process. You can see that if I’m working with a photo, I start with a grid…

phase 1

After an hour or so…

phase 2

Then maybe another hour…or couple of hours…

phase 3

Doesn’t look much different…but it is 🙂 Another couple of hours…phase 4

The light changed a little on the above because daylight was over.
The next morning…phase 5

I still have a little bit left to do (cleaning it up, eliminating the grid) but you get the idea. The unfolding process!

I’m on the lookout for students! Considering conducting a workshop in LA…let me know if you’re interested! 🙂
