Backstage. Chiaroscuro. Based on the tonal drawing below, massing in some of the darks. This will take a bit of time and patient work. It is hard to see the end when you get lost in the kaleidoscope, which may be why we need studies in pencil and/or colour.
Backstage. A harmony in red. I have embarked on a new painting in a tight harmony of reds. This is my tonal study.
For a start, let us stop blaming the victims of the consumer society. Every straw first has to be manufactured. Let us face up to the source of the problem.
Backstage. Colour beginning. Towards the end of his life, as blindness approached, Degas did some powerful paintings in reds. I hope to emulate some of this aesthetic.
Backstage. Developing a new painting. I am starting a new painting based on a drawing from some years back. I'll report back here from time to time. For anybody that wants to follow it, I'll post more or less daily updates on Facebook (www.facebook.com/swartart)
