three-thirty

This is a recent addition to my series “Black Shapes and Textures”, which consist of digital and traditional paintings.
I took a digital photograph of a wall clock and placed it in the software Photoshop,and using the Threshold filter converted it to a black image. I placed this black image of the wall clock over a digital photograph that I took of a painters drop cloth which had paint splatters on it. Using a Photoshop brush I added color to the clock numbers.
More paintings from my series Black Shapes and Textures, can be viewed on my website studiodyess.com

Inner-Space-7-Painting

oil on canvas print painting by John Foster Dyess

The questions are:? What is an abstract painting? What is a realistic painting?
This image started out as combination of photographs I took of several objects and scans of textures I created that I combined in layers using Photoshop. I began to see various forms in my Photoshop creation and began to enhance these forms using a Photoshop brush. After I had completed my digital image I had it printed on canvas ,and using oil paint  I glazed over the print. I have created shapes and forms like I would if I were painting an object or landscape. The difference is this landscape exist in my brain.
This is from a series of paintings I call Inner space.

“the Creation” oil painting by John Foster Dyess

This is an oil painting on canvas print of a digital image called inner space 2 that I posted on January 31,2017. It is the second of my inner space oil painting series that focuses on my inner vision of time, space and the creative process. This painting is 16″ x 16″.  The digital image began as a photograph of my paint palette. I began to enhance images that I saw in this photo, like I was looking at Rorschach test.
