As many may already know, having seen me working at my easel in town, I’m in the middle of another ‘Over the Top” project, that being to paint fifty new paintings of Historic Ellicott City.
These paintings will be used to produce a new series of prints released as separate portfolios.All of the images are being done on site at each location, as a monochromatic painting. These paintings will serve as the base for the application of colors.
I have a temporary studio set up in town, where the paintings will be finished. I am currently at painting number 37. Below are a few samples. Here is a link to all the paintings that have been started.
They are all done as a monachromatic underpainting with colors to be added later.
The mural is finally finished, for the second time. The original mural was made from a painting that was photographed and printed on aluminum panels. It was done that way so it could be easily replaced if it became damaged.
Unfortunately, the printer used dye based inks instead of pigment based inks and the image faded. So, I did the only thing that could be done, repainted the entire mural by hand on site. The mural is nine by eighteen feet. If you find yourself in Historic Ellicott City, MD., check it out.
