As I have mentioned before, I continue to view much of my work in gray scale in an attempt to better appreciate/evaluate value structure and its relation to color. While there is indeed a number of ways in which color significantly alters the perception of value, this method has often revealed ways to enhance the way that form was being communicated in a work. Give it a try with your work! (Shown: Natura, DETAIL 30x24", Oil (gray-scaled)) #art #fineart #realism #representationalart #representationalism #trompeloeil #stilllife

Sometimes my job is stressful and sometimes I get to frame amazing art work! This guy brought in an original Salvador Dali block print and I died! #art #representationalism #aliceinwonderland #salvadordali #blockprint

A few of you are asking about the supplies used for this drawing...it's about 90% ultra soft black PanPastel (applied with various sponges), 9% carbon (Wolff's carbon pencil 4B for dark sharp areas I couldn't get clean with the pastel), and 1% graphite for like five fine brow hairs 😆 (with a mechanical pencil) and tightening lighter areas with some H pencils (like around the teeth highlights). I used a Tombo MonoZero eraser to get fine white (or light) highlights (like the peach fuzz on the chin and pore highlights). And it's all done on a smooth paper (not sure of the brand- it was just part of a left over paper roll I had kicking around the studio).

What some may not realize is that much of my own artistic development has come from countless alla prima life studies. If you want to maximize development--maintain your focus but diversify your experience. 👍🏻 #oilpainting #realism #representationalism #allaprima

I am in absolute awe of this painting done by my friend (and fellow artist) @polly_seip . I love fireworks and she captured them perfectly.

The dry fit of 'The Eleventh Hour' in its frame looks so good!! I am so stoked I had enough framestock leftover from when I framed all the night scenes a couple months back!! I can't wait to varnish the painting (so it'll look richer) and then set it in its frame forever!!

Ameri.... A sign of the times. Saw this on the street while walking home -- crushed and flattened. Been thinking and looking at nationalistic signifiers in our day to day. During the past election Budweiser changed its name on its cans to "America" in a marketing campaign targeted at "patriotic" patrons. Where's the line between love of country and nationalistic, neo-colonialism and fascism? Often that line gets crossed once you've tossed back a dozen or more of these... #crushedcans #ameri #nationalistic #watercolor #gouache #representationalism #realism

Being able to celebrate a colleague's work within your own is like being able to create a remix of an album that you love. I feel quite fortunate to be immersed in a project like this. Hopefully it's not too long yet to the finish line as I look forward to sharing the entire work with you all. #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip

What does it look like when skin meets skin? What does it feel like when you touch the sheer tent canvas existing within Johnstone Park?

How does it feel to be within the installation “sheer representationalism”. There is a feeling of being wrapped within the sheer tent canvas, being protected. The sheer panels create and replicate the plain white walls which exist in a gallery space

Sheer Representationalism by #encounter_evie. This temporary event, encounter, dis-placement is a metaphor for the importance and appreciation of paintings as an art form. It is material representation of the fabric of a community coming together

The materiality chosen for #encounter_evie project "Sheer Representationalism" a sheer tent canvas to be wrapped around the trees of Johnstone Park

Running fabric? Artificial fencing. This work has the ability to create an event out of a simple and contemporary art form. It was a temporary installation that existed only for a period of time, but had a long lasting impact.

At this point I may have painted more books than I have read.(I don't know if that makes me appear to be an experienced painter or relatively not well read. LOL!) Hope everyone has a great week~~~~ #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip

Part of my continuing deliberate practice involving the alla prima focuses on exploration of the elements of constancy and how different methods of abstraction may better communicate these elements. Generally speaking, constancy is the means by which we assign unchanging perceptual or conceptual attributes to an object (discarding seemingly irrelevant dynamic properties) while abstraction is the method of “distilling”, or systematic simplification (most often in a “hierarchical” manner) that transforms the specific to the general.

For example, if you were painting a quick study of an apple---which visual aspects of the subject would you think would be essential for a successful visual communication of the subject? (THIS IS AN EXERCISE EXPLORING CONSTANCY.) Once you have those, in what manner would you visually distill the subject so as to more effective/efficiently communicate it? (THIS IS AN EXERCISE IN ABSTRACTION.) Try this analytic framework the next time you jump into some deliberate practice with quick studies or alla-primas. You might find that it reveals much about how you are trying to communicate visually. Happy Painting! #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #deliberatepractice #allaprima

Paintings lots of bronze and marble today (and loving every minute of it. LOL!) Here's a quick glimpse of the wip. #art #fineart #painting #oilpainting #realism #stilife #representationalism #tepresentationalart #trompeloeil #wip
