In Process: Stage One

The next few days will document the creation of a painting. The hardest aspect of recording the stages of an action painter is the interruption of the work for utilizing the camera.

Probably the most poignant guise of my process is the manner in which it builds a realist life from chaotic beginnings. As can be seen from the two pictures, I started the base of this painting with a combination of blue tones. The canvas is roughly 28”x40”, with an estimated finish size of 24”x36”, after stretching over 2” deep stretchers. – DN
