a small abstract landscape


A series that initially started from my head, and then I just tried to stay with the characters, some collage, some drawing, some a combination of the two. Sizes vary from 18x24 to life size.

finally

Been a while, these are done from life, or from my head, or a combination of the two.
Most are 24x36 or bigger, on paper. Ink, charcoal, gesso, and collage, painted with house painting brushes.






























In these bottom two, the figures are life size or bigger.

Nicolas de Stael

- Nicolas de Staƫl

Another artist worth looking at that I'm really into at the moment...
