Firing Up the Paint Palette: Paint Exercises

Coarse Interference Patterns - early stage
Coarse Interference Patterns - early stage

Fortunately, I have an over-supply of canvas to fire up the paint palette with.

Shape, color, line.  Those are the essentials of a composition.  I have these small canvasses, or sometimes I like to use a heavy Rives BFK, that I work on freely.  I start them without a goal which probably comes from the influence of modern art.  

I want to share these loose, personal paintings here, as well as any other experiments and more committed works because for a lot of artists, we like to make the magic happen in secret and then present the finished product with a bow on it.  It doesn’t always work out that way though, so this blog project is to give you a picture of how paintings can rise and fall and shift and form.

This little piece on a scrap of loose canvas is called Coarse Interference Patterns.   Coarse because it is composed of a lot of paint-brush-shaped shapes, crude like that.  Interference, because the directions of these shapes and lines are dissonant and disrepectful of one another.  Patterns, because all is pattern at a certain scale.

I don't know how long this little piece will go on.

This one is painted with remnants of my old acrylic paint collection, most of it from Los Angeles.  I have a few remaining containers of the following that are featured here:

Art is creative for the sake of realization, not for amusement... for transfiguration, not for the sake of play. Max Beckmann
