More fooling around with the granite sketch. Studio shot of work in progress, acrylic and ink on canvas:
Completely different approach than the last posted, but it is in line with an enduring stylistic interest of mine that comes up every so often and never really goes away. Witness this pastel from all the way back in 1999:
Pinto Mountains from Wonder Valley
1999. Pastel and charcoal on sandpaper, 14 x 10-1/8 in.
This is a view from my property, right after I acquired my studio. I was just beginning to try out ways to encompass the enormity of what I was seeing – the enormity, the simplicity, the complexity. And how it’s all happening at once, in one vast pulsating organism filled with space. Still working on it.
