Out with the Old . . .

Last week I told you that I was going to mark down some of my older work. I chose five and cut the price by 50%. I also sent out an early notification on my facebook page ( Joshua Chambers : Art) a couple of days before I posted the info on here. One has already sold. Here are the remaining four:

If you are interested in purchasing, please contact me by email through my website, or through my facebook page.

Now, for the step-by-step I promised you:

Once the vinyl is applied (see photo from last weeks post) each panel receives several transparent coats of color until the desired color is achieved.

vinyl lettering is then removed, and two or three more coats of paint go on in order to cover the white of the gesso. This gives the surface an embossed look.

next, a smaller version of the same text is applied to the panel, and the figures or scenes are drawn on top of and around the text. In this photo the drawing is complete and the painting was just started.

Once the drawing is done, the painting is then completed.

The final step is to remove the vinyl.

The final product results in a subtle inclusion of the text within the picture plane.
