Hey man, thanks.
As far as process, I'm not sure I really have one (I wish that I did). If you want to know about a specific piece, I can tell you how I went about it. But, for the most part, these all came about differently.
Thank you, my question was about the generic approach to shapes and light you adopt when working. I'm expecially interested in images 6-7, cause I really like the "grain" and materic feeling of the pieces and the sharpness of gestures/paints. Thank you for your answers!
Okay, for many of my paintings (and specifically those two) I start by filling in the background with a gradient (whatever I’m feeling that day) and then, using the mouse, I start blocking in a shapes (on the same layer as the background), aiming more for emotion (for lack of a better word)rather than specific details. I usually use a square, or chunky brush. I use the mouse for a couple reasons but mainly because it won’t let me get bogged down in trying to paint or be painterly (which I don’t want until near the end). Somewhere in the middle a painting starts to take shape (I start out with very little idea of where I’ll end up). The grain you’re referring to is just a noise filter applied as a last step. I’ll usually duplicate my “final” layer (making a new layer), add some noise and adjust the opacity until I feel like it’s about right and then combine them.
There’s a bunch of steps there in the middle that I left out (mostly because they’d be boring) but I hope that helps.
Thank you, I never considered using the mouse but I'll try for sure, because probably it can be a solution for me too. I always tend to do more at the initial steps of the paintings, losing the general feeling and shapes every time. For the grain question I'm referring not only to the noise, but more to the density of the painting, but saying you work for emotion and controlling shapes and gestures you answered me!
Thank you again for your time and answers, keep on the good work.
GORGEOUS work Rich !!! love it all
