Engine Abstraction #6

Engine Abstraction #6

Acrylic collage

Trains are one of my favorite subject matter to paint and I have found working on this series exciting. Using reference photos taken myself, I zero in on a close up, concentrating on strong design and values. I begin doing a sketch in colored pencils, and complete it in a ratio that will be easy to transfer to the gessoed hardboard. This is an archival board and working in collage on it is wonderful, in that it does not buckle or warp. This particular design features a boxcar in black, orange, sienna, tan, and gray, and is varnished to protect it.
