Close-ups


By popular request, it's close-ups day. The first couple are detail shots of Untitled 23, and the next bunch are from Untitled 22. Both paintings are oil and cold wax.







And it's been a while since we've checked closely on Rumi's dentition...




Bonus pic: Rumi's tummy, for virtual snorgling:

LOVE LOVE the close-ups...so much is going on! Thanks for posting them.
I also love the tummy pic for virtual snorgling and the fang and tongue shots. tooo much!

The close ups are like a weaving of sorts. Very tactile, textile. Maybe a sub- conscious influence.
Rumi, however, as a close-up looks less textile-y and more reptile-y.
But in a good and delicious way.

Enjoying the close-ups. Love 23!
Looking at Rumi and thinking what an innocent little nose but the teeth tell a different story ..... as do the blue stained socks in a previous post.

These are great and I bet they carry a dramatic impact in person.

Thank you for the close-ups. It's nice to see the textures created with this medium. I love the subtlety.

Pam, thank you.

Thanks, Mona. It was indeed.

Loriann - A virtual snorgle to you. You're welcome.

Bonnie - Ah, Rumi, my delicious reptile...

ArtPropelled - Yep, sometimes innocent and sometimes very naughty.

Thank you, David.

Neva - Please see several previous posts of mine (during and after my recent workshop) for a full discussion of the technique.

Thanks, Lisa.

Thanks for the close ups. It's really interesting to see how oil and cold wax combine.
