STILL ON THE HUNT!


JERRY COLLAGE & ACRYLIC
JERRY COLLAGE & ACRYLIC IN PROGRESS
I finally got the studio organized (for the umpteenth time!) so I could move around and paint in comfort.    I am still exploring what is the best process for me to get the results I have in my mind's eye.  That internal vision is always so elusive!  So here I go again.  I decided to try putting down collage papers in the approximate place I think is right and then draw on top of that.  Lastly I am adding acrylic paint.  I am trying to use non-brushes in much of the paint application.  I have scraped acrylic on with a plastic card, used those new rubber shapers (not thrilled with this tool yet but more experimenting to go) and an inch wide sponge roller.  At this point I have practically obliterated the collage papers on the face.  I may go back and add in some.  This piece is very experimental and I am going to keep trying things until I like the look.

Well, I sure like what you've done thus far, Myrna. But then I always do.

your experiments look very good :) I love the different colors and textures. And I know what you mean by the difference in whats in the 'mind's eye' and on the paper --in my case I attribute it to a big leak in my elbows !!!

This is really spectacular.

I really like how you handle the texture, and how, without losing the forms, you are going to give layer above layer.
I love the textures, acrylics and experimenting with colors and shapes ....

I imagine most would prefer the more finished stage, and I think it's great...but I prefer the first pic, I like "unfinished" ...doesn't really matter, everything you do has the ring of truth and is spoken from the heart.
