I combined 4 main elements oil, pastel, colored pencil & mixed media to create this piece. I also used a 3 point perspective rule to create the view.
I had no idea what this painting was going to look like when I started and I had to be very careful when I was making design and material decisions. What took the most time was the blocks that are penciled in and then colored. This took a lot of concentration and planning as well as a unique apparatus that I put together in order to make the lines perfect. The surface was textured and then sanded down to a smooth surface that allowed the pencil and the pastels to really be effective.
Without commitment I write the following. I like to paint. I like to draw. I like to sculpt. I like to fix and create things.
Art is the only thing in my life that I don't have to take seriously. It comes from within and I don't argue with it. The meanings or influences that go into my painting although they are my own are easily translated by viewers from their perspective.
I have a lot of irons in the fire which is an expression meaning that I have a lot going on in my life. I build websites for companies and work from home. I have no children, I'm not married, I'm surrounded by cats, dogs and horses. I always find time to paint because I'd rather be doing that anyway.
A year or more ago I gave birth to a painting using 3 point perspective. It is titled Absolute Uncertainty. It is my member gallery but take a look at all of the developing photos, close ups and flash presentation on how to properly use 3 point perspective. I receive emails from all over the world on how cool this is, so I point to you this shining star.
Appreciate all you have in your heart and love the people around you. Dave
