Bear Head Is On The Move

This weekend update: I packed up the minivan with tons of painting supplies, lots of cardboard, glue guns, and two kids and headed to Sis and Moons to start an large installation (still in progress). The kids Helped me unpack boxes of paint and odds and ends, in the process earned some choice pieces of cardboard, and settled in the back to work on their totem pole (thanks Chris). Below is a picture of one canvas we use in the ‘Street Art‘ class and my new wall. The bear head strapped to the top of the van, lots of cardboard and a minivan …

Street art class, on The PaintYard

The Paint Yard, wrote a nice post about the ‘Street Art Class’ The paint yard is a great place to get a variety of spray paint and supplies (fat caps, liners, specialty paints, markers and more) and they have the ‘Sugar’ from the makers of Ironlak, the paint is special. It combines water with alcohol made from sugar cane, replacing the usual petroleum-based solvents. The result is an extremely low-odor spray paint that contains fewer VOCs (volatile organic compounds). It is important that students are safe and get to work with high quality materials, while learning the fundamentals of design …

Class Homework, W1

We will be trying out a new product ‘Sugar’ a cane sugar based paint. This week we will be working on letter forms and putting that onto the canvas. Below are some samples to jumpstart your imagination. We will also be working with the MTN water based, the Montana Gold acrylic, and the NEW Sugar based paint. Each alphabet is a good example of continuity within a style. Look at Line weight, color, shape and of course the flare!

Street Art class, making wrapping paper

The street art class is winding down. The five week long street art class has hit class number five and number five was so fun, it started out as a lesson on stencils and evolved into a wrapping paper making project. The session ended so well we are adding one more class (a sixth week). Great work everyone! Everyone really pushed and got their hand dirty. Detail, an orange snowflake under a gold start, hiding behind a green tree, that was run over by a candy cane. lots of stencilling action going on here. The Montana water based paints worked great, Thanks …

Painting, it begins..again

I have been spending a lot of time this year sketching, in ‘@FiftyThree‘ s Paper53 app on the ipad or at the live drawing events held by #Alpharetta Figure Drawing/Painting Group. I think it’s time to start painting now. Working with brushes is flowing like it should. I start to paint after the kids go to bed then I lookup… and the sun is peeking in. Feels great to lose that much time. Three 40″x30″ canvases, and I have a 40″x70″ that i need to sand and surface. These pieces are still in progress, the one in the center is close to being done. Working on some, …

Painting the Dog heads

Working on the dog heads, what to do? I will attempt to make all them super! I grabbed three of the seven heads to take to The Sis & Moon studio.   These to are  just getting started.   I found lots of air holes, I will patch and paint. It was a good test and will need some more work. Thanks Murph for the “One Shot” I will return them shortly!

Friday sketchbook review

Hola, I have been hard at work making paintings for the Hive (LA), and getting The Sis & Moon Studio looking good. So the “Friday Sketchbook review” has been taking a back seat, But I’m back on track now.

I also have just started a new sketchbook, you will see the work next friday from that one, It’s a Moleskine and I look forward to wrecking it. Love, a “P” meets …

Working on new Dog Head, update.

I am very  happy with the silicone mold so far, I have been able to make seven heads. Next up…  painting. A closed mold is easier to spin around, learned that the hard/messy way. I wrapped a piece of cling wrap around a scrap of cardboard, silicone and cling wrap make a decent seal. Yes that is “pink lacy” elastic, it’s what I had on hand. I have a big roll of it, don’t ask. Now for some trimming and sanding, then Paint! super excited!!!!  

Working on new Dog Head, update.

With the outer shell done (plaster around pink silicone) I made the first casting. The gary head is the plastic casting (copy), the white one is the original sculpted (modeling clay) head, and the pink is the silicone negative. This is my first pour, I need to practice, a few thin spots and air bubbles. Clem was happy with the likeness. A little vanilla sky, Clem style.

Working on new Dog Head, update.

Starting the mold (mould) from the sculpture. Finished the left eye and nose, then started the mould process. I was nervous at first, I always thought that the original sculpture would be trash if you didn’t make the mould just right (that’s for plaster moulds), but after the first layer was dry I was hooked. I think (cross fingers) that this will be a good first test and I can then start scaling up. First pour of silicone I will let it cure overnight and apply another coat of smooth-on 5050 in the morning. So far easy to work with and …

New installation at Sis&Moon

Spicing up the gallery. I am moving to a new space, same building, and thought it would be worth a saturday. I thought about it for a minute and started with brown butcher paper for visual structure. Then an aqua and beige landscape under it, with a little white line for more structure.   Then some paintings on top.

Cardboard head

Dire wolf head for the wall. I started with my dog as a model, and tried to keep it simple. Also keeping supplies simple: a pencil, a box cutter, t square, Elmer’s glue and some scotch tape. – I quickly sketched my dog, Maggie’s profile. In the picture below you can see it cut out. I used the two profilesI cut to guide the build. Internal supports where added to so pieces could be built independently them jointed after they where ridged. This is the the head now, I plan to smooth and paint while maintaining a very square profile. …
