Thoughts on technique, experiments with new ways of working, works in progress, or general ramblings. Much of the material posted here relates to SketchUp, to painting in various media, and to drawing. Your mileage may vary. Enjoy!
While the paint dried on several paintings today I spent some more time playing with structures in SketchUp for future paintings. Here are a few tricks used in this one:
As the stuff becomes second nature, you find yourself limited by imagination more than by the tool… the sign of a good tool.
Work continues on the study for the next painting.
Ideally the painting would be large enough for the figures on the far left to be clearly resolved. Something like 40” wide, 20” high or even larger.
3D sketches for a putative future painting.
The title 'Invisible Cities’ is from an amazing book by Italo Calvino.
