Raised Ranch Paintings

After years of using the computer as a drawing tool I decided to abandon it and return to using pencil, eraser, ruler and paper as a way of making the preparatory drawing for a painting. I also made the decision to use shaped supports after realizing that when I was looking at the previous Deck or Backsplit paintings in the studio I was constantly imagining what they would look like with particular sections/areas removed.

Backsplit Series 2015

IMG_1739

Start of Backspilt Series. (centre and left). The darker colour now has 2 additional tints as opposed to just the one used in the Deck series (right).  This additional tint was added in order to increase the spacial complexity of the paintings.  The airbrushing has not been carried out yet.
