ImAginato Menacing on Easel







Back to the easel for a quick sketch from the imaginato department. I have been reading Rowland Hilder and he was not a follower of traditional rules. Surprisingly, I have always just used transparent watercolor according to the "rules", mostly no opaque white, until recently no black, no chalk, pastel, graphite, carbon or plutonium. However ol'Rowland who shed his mortal coil some dozen years ago, used whatever he felt would work and his work is inspiring for/to me. I always wanted more texture and atmo in my productions, my wrecks are mostly dilettantes, they gotta be more wrecked...more menacing...

I like how the fenders look swelled. Maybe this car needs a tetnis shot or something?

Your paintings always look like they have so much texture already!!! This one is dark and moody!

I like the color of the car. (I'm in the lookings for a new car, but the lookings for money has been less successful)

Ron, it's good to see you experimenting again! i like the texture of the chalk(?)on that old tin roof. i've ventured into the same territory, using whatever will work to get the effect i'm after. it's very freeing, isn't it! it opens up a whole new world of possiblities.
