Old Blue complete

 I'm going to call this piece complete.

I've added a light wash of colour in places to accent and break up all that blue.  I still can't get a decent scan or photo of it.  I'm just going to stop saying that.  Everyone who reads my blog knows my photo skills are crappy.  I make no apologies.  Its a left brain thing.

Meanwhile I've created some bio notes as I have a few irons in the fire that need immediate attention.  Writing in third person always feels odd.  I keep thinking 'who is this person? Do I know them?'  However, the formula is there for writing a piece about me and my work and I'm pretty happy with it. I'm in giclee mode now that spring is more or less here and will visit the printer in the next day or two to get some pieces underway.

There are projects in store that I can't say anything about yet.  You didn't hear me say that, ok?

I have enjoyed watching the progression of this piece, the use of a complimentary foundation, everything. Looking forward to seeing what is next.

Absolutely stunning--a virtuoso blend of technique and vision!!

Billie Crain said...

This really turned out well, Jeanette! I'm amazed that you managed to create the wood grain so well using pointilism. Bravo!

Jeanette said...

Thanks Jennifer. It satisfied my need for old things. :)

Thanks Niall. Like everything I can always see areas I could improve, but overall I like it.

I'm trying to figure out what will be next too Elaine! I'm in a bit of a lull right now.

Thanks so much Ann.

Laura, thank you.

Billie, that wood grain gave me grief. It was time consuming to reproduce the plywood floor especially. Because the piece was fairly small, I used a fine nib .18 so that gave me more control over detail.
