if you are wondering why my house hasn't changed in a while, it is because i have been working on this. this is my second venture into the world of glazing. i applied several translucent layers of color over the top of the pattern, some over the whole piece and some over specific areas. i hope you like the result.|
Yes, very nice. I imagine the photo doesn't capture it very well. :-)
the scrolling one is actually pretty accurate.
I'd expect the layers of transparency to have a great effect when viewed with the eyes. Depth doesn't show up very well in pictures.
I like the colors you layered over the top...the piece as a whole is a little too quiet for my taste, I like your more active, meandering compositions...But the way you've begun to experiment with layering over top of your farbels is really cool. I like to see different things happening in different parts of a painting.
What did you layer the top colors with? It almost looks airbrushed..?
i simply used a soft brush and an approximately 90% medium to 10%pigment mix. and don't worry, i'll get a bit wilder with it eventually. ;)
HeeheeeeeeeYAY! good. wild is good. quiet is ok...but wild is really good. Your work is so alive and organic, it gets into your subconscious easily. So. You have a way in. What are you gonna do with it??hehe

That is absolutely fanfarbelous! I applaud you (once again)!!
I assume you get comments e-mailed to you.
The art teacher here said she might go to Tucson this upcoming weekend. (We have a 3-day weekend, Friday-Sunday.) I told her I knew somebody there and suggested that maybe you two might meet, both being artists and such. She's never been to Tucson before, and wanted to tour it (historic sections, U of A, art galleries, etc.) If you're free, maybe you might be able to see her or show her part of the city?
Anyway, e-mail me:
or e-mail Judy Allen:
(Tell her you're a friend of Colin, if you e-mail her.)
