Degradated Shadows… Summer

no images were found

Degradated Shadows…Summer is the first of a series of 4 images.  The first work being completed is summer.  The series will follow the seasons: spring, summer, fall and winter.  Each piece is 48″ h x 60″w.  They are of a photograph taken in the fall of 2010.

The surface the images is adhered to is high grade interior plywood, coated with primer paint and then again coated with gesso.  Portions of the surface are altered with a mixture of gel medium and ground pumas.  The image is torn into individual rectangles and then applied using acrylic gel medium over the gesso and pumus medium.

Areas of the image are air brushed to add small amounts of color.  Additional texture is added to the surface of some areas of the print.  The final touch is to sponge color blossoms to the tree.

If you look closely, the tree is a shadow. Click on thumbnail to view enlargement.
