|Evening at the Ramp #2 48" x 24"|
Over the past few years a lot of my work has explored waterfront architecture, mostly piers, and I have gradually developed a technique to suggest the water and reflections. My process, which I will now call the Stamped Ripple Technique, has attracted a lot of attention and many questions.
The photographs below show how I created the water on this painting:
|Using oil paint I prepare several colors on my palette |
which is placed on a surface adjacent to the painting.
|A strip of wood is then dipped into the paint....|
|The stamping process allows me to leave parts of the under - |
painting/collage showing through the water.
