Yesterday I began sorting through a storage closet containing some of my drawings ,paintings and illustrations,some created forty years ago,and began eliminating some by putting them in a recycling bin. Some I scanned before recycling. This model study painted in pencil and acrylic I kept.
This portrait study,created in the late 1970’s in less the two hours,including model breaks, was painted in oil wash using turpentine on canvas board. This was a technique used by some illustrators,including myself,during this time period. My work became much tighter in the late eighties. I kept this one just as an example of my painting style in the 1970’s
This was a layout for a proposed catalog section which would feature music and sound products like record players. This was drawn with graphite pencil on illustration board using gesso and Dr. Martin’s dyes. I kept a scan and recycled the painting. More from my closet of historical paintings and drawings during the next week.
