I have not posted in a while but I have been playing around with this idea in my head for some time now. I was thinking of different ways of using mark making, in particular in a much more controlled manner. I know this will take some spontaneity away from the original concept but I want to put these techniques to better use. Thus I decided to use it to create 3 textured surfaces added by painting some on to the smooth side of hard board and some on to the rough side. I have used red, yellow and brown acrylic mixed with saw dust, sand and a hint of silver spray paint
The textures would resemble rusted metal surfaces. I have only got that far though with commissions coming out of my ears since August. The plan will be to do a photoshoot of some lovely ladies from the neck up with some dynamic lighting to create soft and hard tones to work from. Using a similar kind of stencil style to my previous work but with some areas less defined and painted with a brush, I am intending to create a peeled paint type look over the top of the rust background as if it was weathered.
This would complement the rusty surface as paint naturally peels from rusted surfaces, it then looks almost like a face is naturally being revealed from the excess paint left over.
