Improvisation has begun on the painting I mentioned in this post.

Image transfer got to a point where I was satisfied and away we go…I’ve also been using improvised paper stencils to open up areas of the composition…more on this soon.

I’m currently working on this painting, which I’m toying with the idea of calling The Cacotopic Stain after a geographical area featured in a brilliant book by China Méiville entitled Iron Council.

The painting is based on a monochrome digital construct, which I’m transferring to canvas using acrylic paint and one paintbrush…

Once the image transfer is complete, I will improvise areas of colour and images on top. It’s a method I’ve adopted for the last couple of paintings. If you want to see more please visit my website: https://richardguest.art/ or my Instagram account:

In the process of backing up a load of files, I found this run of images. These are the working “drawings” for my painting December. They are in chronological order so you can see how the image developed over time (a month or so?).

All the photographic elements are things I found in the street or in shop windows. Who is that masked man? It’s a process of accretion and deletion…What to keep and what to throw away?

And here is the final painting…

Mutie #1, 2015 C Type Print

December’s Print of the Month is now available to buy here.

Mutie #1, is one of my earliest attempts to use improvised brushstrokes in a digital image. I began by painting in acrylic on paper, which was scanned into Photoshop and edited. The photographic elements come from street shots I took in London in 2015. I’ve chosen now to put the print on sale because I’m currently re-exploring this way of working.

 

Landscape in Three Parts, 2018– Landscape In Three Parts (Sketch), 2018 –

This was one possible solution to how do I paint a “landscape” using square canvases (80 x 80 cm)…it’s still on the back burner while I work through some other stuff…

The title for the above construct comes from the title track of David Sylvian’s 2003 album, Blemish.  You can hear it here.

– 31 March, 2015 –

This takes its title from the day it was completed. I started working on it 27th February and continued every day until the 31st March 2015. Once part III was roughly how I wanted it to be I started work on Part I. Once that part was most of the way there, I started on II and then worked on all three parts simultaneously. All three images have a bit of me in there somewhere.
