New painting—”Dancers”

In my sketchbook was an ink drawing that had been on my mind for a  long time . . . so finally decided recently to enlarge it on canvas. I used the old-fashioned grid technique, which involves transferring the image one square at a time, until the entire image is redrawn.

The first photo shows the brother of a student holding up a scan of the original image, and the larger image already drawn in on canvas.

The next photo shows my student Gianna holding the completed work:

If you look at the piece as white on black, you see white dancers, but . . . if you look at the piece as black on white, you see black dancers. They are interlocked. A bit of an optical illusion!

Ascension – view of autumn leaves

Ascension in black & white, framed

Ascension in black & white, framed

Originally I took a photo of a tree through the sun roof of my car on a cloudy day. The leaves were falling fast, so outdoor painting wasn’t an option. I transferred the image to a much larger surface using the old-fashioned grid technique. This pencil drawing took about a week. Inking took even longer! But the result is a very large pen-and-ink, almost photographic (but not quite).
