Another ‘gesture’ painting — this one uses the same gesture character set as my earlier (and smaller) airbrushed “Jim”, but the gestures are slightly larger (1/4 inch squares) and are painted using the Paasche Flow Pencil, so the tip touches the paper. It’s painted on Rives BFK, so the paper surface has been abraded quite deeply — more and more with each additional stroke of the tip across the paper. I like the effect, but it interferes with the clarity of the line and with the paint flow, so I imagine that I’ll use a stronger paper for my next effort.
In the movie and several of the photos, three colors have been painted in order: black, yellow, red. A final color, blue, is starting to go down along the left side of the portrait.
