The First Layers

While I was working on the "Scribbles", I took a lot of photos and using Photoshop, started to layer them, taking bits and pieces from one and adding them to another, all the while not knowing where this was going or quite what I was doing, trying to pay attention to what was happening as I layered line upon line. Soon they were demanding more color than what was in the drawings, even thought an amazing amount of color presents itself when you photograph drawings. So back to my files of color and textures. You can see why I really need to get these files in some sort of order. It's a very instinctual process of feeling my way, of trying to find or see the light or follow the line or thread, of trying to bring forth what I sense is there. 
The in between place


  1. I love the depth,mood, light, shadows
    back and do some drawings i think
    Looking forward to more of your work.

  2. Thanks David, here the landscape in January, really impresses the notion or idea of drawing as it is a high contrast and subtle color.


I appreciate your thoughts and comments; thanks for taking the time.
