It’s not very loud. Just a faint scratch on paper, or a soft blerp or splat or splosh or slosh of paint, and perhaps an occasional sigh. The sounds of the art studio and work being made with pencil and paint.*
First the thumbnail sketches...
Then the studies.
Eventually underpainting begins.
And at last the first color layer.
That's not the end of it. There is more to come, so stay tuned. "Painting is silent poetry, and poetry is painting that speaks". Plutarch
*onomatopeia - a word, which imitates the natural sounds of a thing.
From San Diego to Vancouver, 100 Artists of the West Coast II covers 100 artists with over 400 full color photographs of their work. The collection includes art from private as well as public collections and installations, including the collections of LACMA, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Museum of Modern Art New York, and the New York Public Library to name just a few. I'm happy to be included.
