I work primarily in acrylic on stretched canvas.  My preferred method is to “build” a painting by adding layer upon layer to the canvas, and the fact that the acrylic paint dries quickly makes it the perfect medium for my style.

    What’s the meaning of this artwork?

    Each day I peruse your art…..trying to figure out the method. Frustration abounds. Do you offer an online course or better yet, book telling the secrets of your method and process? I am trying to figure it out and have covered so many canvasses only to screw …..cannot get the transparency of all those fabulous layers……

      I have only been working on putting down my thoughts about the mental part of the art-making process. I hadn’t considered tackling the technical aspects of my process, as it has always struck me as being pretty straightforward. I am more than happy to answer any technical/process question you may have. Email me any time. I don’t want to be responsible for causing frustration.

        Have you produced any videos of yourself creating one of your fabulous paintings? I too would like to know how you build up the layers in your work.

        I have made no videos, and don’t have the technical skills to do so. I will, however, make an effort to do a few more “evolution of a painting” series. The trick is to remember to start photographing at the very beginning of a piece.
