I’ve been sketching up some ideas for paintings for the past couple of days. I took my sketchbook to work with me, hehe, don’t tell anyone. I set up the doctor’s lounge with food and then I sit behind the buffet and draw while they come in to eat. I drew a couple pictures of them getting their food.
But anyway, I’ve decided that I’m going to work on some more paintings. In order to keep up with blogging at the same time, I’m going to record my progress and write a little about my process. That way I can satisfy multiple outlets and not feel like I’m ditching anything.
Here’s the first step in the process.
I sketch out a rectangle, create a grid pattern inside (in this case I wanted some strong verticals coming down from the top) and then assign different patterns and textures to the grid. I’m using some patterns of textiles and surfaces from the family cabin in Pennsylvania. My Sister-in-Law’s dog Krum will be the subject. Next, to the canvas.
