More People

More from the people series I did almost 20 years ago. Mostly working form photographs then and taking (small) steps away from the copy- copy -copy version of painting from photos. Still some of that going on here....

This is from that same time...working on some kind of reading theme...or a red book theme. These were on canvas painted in acrylic. Started with a pencil underpainting and then painted over with washes of acrylic. Probably the beginnings of how I got to my poured paintings of today ..some understanding from this that layers of paint could be used to create the color that the eye reads as blue or red or green. Nothing in nature is only one color....
