ARTIST AS DIRECTOR SERIES
In these paintings, I think like a director. I focus on developing the setting, the characters, the decor, the light source, and the mood of the story. I draw directly on the canvas with a fine tip charcoal pencil, editing my lines as I draw out the scene. Like the script, my drawing is what guides me while I paint. I use a strong light source to develop my forms and shadows. The trademark moments of my “Artist as Director Paintings,” are their vibrant color, and conceptually whimsical forms. I exaggerate my drawings and color pallet to make the experience more dramatic and entertaining. When completed, I have produced a full production within the final piece of art.
