I love faces. I love drawing faces, painting faces, collaging faces, seeing the shadows on faces – you get the idea. I was inspired by Artist Christine Peloquin to create a face over collages and use multiple canvases. I was so excited to try this technique. This is my first piece and I see a series in my future.
This piece is made up of 4 separate 8×8 inch canvases. I first painted the canvases with acrylics and played in the abstract.
Then, I did a rough sketch of the facial features with a Stabilio All Pencil to make sure they were in proportion on each canvas. Then, I painted the faces, also using acrylics.
I installed this piece today at the Art Gallery Napa Valley and it will be on display all month if you want to check it out in person. The title of the piece is “I See You.” Enjoy!
