So, after designing a logo
for my friend Nicholasí noise-infused-psychedelic-minimal-improvisational band called Waterbear, I decided to incorporate the logo type into another creative output. My favorite go-to texture exploration medium is acrylic and oil painting. I enjoy my own style of painting, often fast and within the moment. Sometimes it treats me incredibly well and other times it doesnít work. I always learn something from each exploration and utilize each step to hone my skill. Before I start painting I typically have no idea how I want the end-result to look. This is what makes the process and end-result so special to me and itís pretty much why I paint. The experience of painting. If people like what I create, thatís awesome.The Process
I typically start with a paint brush, some flat color and quickly cover the canvas. Many times I like to challenge myself in utilizing monochromatic color schemes (as often seen in my With Paint Portfolio). I also tend to stick with earth tones and colors that compliment each other (which should go without saying). I embrace plenty of texture, achieved through brush stroke techniques and/or painting with found objects. For example, the FedEx mailer bags that are made of thick nylon or some kind of paper+nylon combination to make them durable, yeah those, they make incredible texture-aids. You crumple them hell out of them and they wonít rip. Then uncrumple the bag, cover one side with plenty of paint, place it over an area of the canvas and act like your painting on the backside. The result is pretty amazing. Itís fun to play with placement too - either on the canvas or dispersement of paint on the crumpled bag.
The process really takes an understanding of color theory, the textureís relationship with color and proper application.
Nicholas and I have talked about me painting a number of these in different color schemes and selling them at his shows. I think something like this will be ahead in the near future and Iíd really love to do it. Hopefully people will buy them..
