"Solstice" - 6

Getting into the second panel of the back wall... as can be seen, working upside down, not as viewed here...

"Solstice" - 5

and am back at this, having been interrupted a few times with other matters, including getting my old pc back, with the photos, but without, for now, the documents and bookmarks - so been spending time trying to remember as many of the latter as can...

as can be guessed, this is actually being worked on upside down, not as seen here...  antelope brown with crow quill nib...

"Solstice" - 4

all but the back wall is now done - scarlet on the floral and berries, antelope brown on the shelf and under, white added to floral, and emerald green layered over the sap green on the xmas cactus leaves... the holly leaves remain just sap green...

 New work in progress - this being an experiment of using the acrylic paint as the medium instead of the acrylic inks, but still using the pens and nibs...  the color is pthalo blue...

and this is the finished and fixed grisaille - now to glaze the colors on.........

"Binding Curve" - 2

finished the grisaille, tho with a bit more there than intended, so having to work out a 'save', as seen in the penciling....

Saturday, September 29, 2012

"Binding Curve" - 1

further work on the grisaille...........

Friday, September 28, 2012

"Binding Curve" - WIP

have begun another - 14"x9" - grisaille in progress, prussian blue acrylic ink...

Tuesday, September 25, 2012

"Au Paired" - finished

decided to just color the wood grain using the antelope brown, letting the differential of contrast bring it all out yet not distracting from the 'main event'.........

"Au paired"

Having finished the 'monster' painting, FUGUE, have, between catching up on my reading, resumed rendering, this time a small one of 14"x11"...  here shows a work in progress on several fronts - the prussian blue grisaille, red earth and antelope brown for the under part of the support, flesh [ yes, is the name on the  FW acrylic ink label] and antelope brown for the stone, light green and emerald green on the stem, with sepia on the shade part and into the woody area of the plant...

"Protinuousy"

a discovery of a 'lost' work of many years ago brings forth this... 24"x18" pen and ink on primed pad canvas...

Saturday, August 18, 2012

and FUGUE is finished...  48"x96", 36"x96" painted area, black acrylic ink on primed roll canvas...

Thursday, August 16, 2012

 Because it took so long getting the bamboo done, because of the twists and such of the thicket, am adding a 'post-next-to-the-last' update...










 here is the close-up of the thicket, showing how complex it is...
and here is the rest of the main painting just finished...  as soon as the ink is dry, will cut the 9 feet of canvas from the roll, and then begin doing the birds and wired above - the last bit to the work...

Monday, August 13, 2012

Next-to-the-last update on this, hopefully, as the next one should be the finished one...  ran out of ink Friday so had to wait until today to get another bottle...  so now can move on to finishing detailing the bamboo [seen left], and the birds and wires above...

Thursday, August 02, 2012

Closing in - one can see the vegetation on the left... once reach that, then go over the unfinished veggies, then get the wires and birds........  and be done.

Friday, July 20, 2012

Monday, July 16, 2012

Am now working my way back, detailing as I go along, both the fence and vegetation...  when reach the rest on the left side, will then go over it all and erase all the pencil marks...

Saturday, July 14, 2012

the ending of this is at long last in sight, tho the fence needs be inked, and the next section of fuguing - the knots - needs be laid in.....

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

this is the whole of the rendering as it presently is - the hard part, the ground, is now done, and can get on with the rest of the vegetation and fence...

Saturday, June 23, 2012

And I continue to work my way to the end, detailing the next section - only one left, then the ground will be done.....

Wednesday, June 20, 2012

Rainy days, so managed to get in a wee bit of detailing...

Sunday, June 17, 2012

The ground outlining is finally done - now to get to the detailing..........

Saturday, June 16, 2012

as for what a fugue is - [from Webster] -
a : a musical composition in which one or two themes are repeated or imitated by successively entering voices and contrapuntally developed in a continuous interweaving of the voice parts

b : something that resembles a fugue especially in interweaving repetitive elements

Monday, June 11, 2012

 progress on this - got the bamboo section lined in, and working to the right end on the ground outlining... as soon as done outlining, will detail, then get back to the fence and vegetation...

Saturday, May 19, 2012

In going thru my old postings, especially the ones from the first year, came on this one - "Breakthrough"...
and it reminded me that at one time had in mind doing a series of landscapes [and perhaps some co-relating still life] wherein each was a complete painting in itself, yet the series comprised a grander landscape, also with its co-responding theming...back then, too many other matters competed for attention, and this idea got put on the backburner - and actually forgotten...

Time to revive it, am thinking...........

Friday, May 18, 2012

FINALLY finished the ground, so can now get on with doing the bamboo over the fence area - then measure the whole off to see just how much more to go to reach the 8 feet length..........

Monday, May 14, 2012

Slowly making more progress... despite pain in my wrist limiting time able to spend on this, am plodding along on the detailing of the ground - and when get that done will go to getting the bamboo all up in front of the fence...  then will unroll the whole and measure, so as not to go further than needs to...

Friday, May 04, 2012

beginning to fill in the new section... still lots of bamboo yet to do, enough to hide the fence actually...  then begins the detailing......

Wednesday, May 02, 2012

Slowly making my way across - now into another new section... needs break and get in those wires and birds, probably this weekend.......

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

And this is how it stands at the moment, about a third of the way down...  for scale, it is about two feet from the bottom of the work to the top of the fence...

Monday, April 16, 2012

Continuing into the new section, adding more fencing and covering fence areas with vine growth, working from the top down as the leaves overlap from the bottom up...

Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Got the left side of the fence down, and most of the ground - so now to get on with more sections........

Friday, April 06, 2012

Beginning to texture the fence planks..............

Wednesday, April 04, 2012

Putting some things more into context............
