Left Ear Art
Maryland Heights, MO
I love using a bold palette in creating my landscapes. Soft pastels and sanded pastel paper or board are used with an ink or watercolor underpainting. I strive to create paintings full of rhythm and color.
I take photographs at night with a flash and invert them to the negative so darks and lights are reversed then I mirror the image along different axes and mount the photo to acrylic.
With long shutter speeds and dusk lighting the artist captures urban photos from around the world and returns home to interpret them in the studio with these large scale palette knife oils on canvas.
Tinley Park, IL
I do a pencil drawing on canvas then an underpainting. I then work with several transparent layers of acrylic paint until I achieve the desired color balance.
