Great White Painting

I have begun a new large scale project in paint.

I have been working on this imagery of the whole of the United States but fragmented and highlighting the major highways.

Originally, it began by making this very beefy and textural paint surfaces in tones of grey and the pastel colors that find in map books. img_2052.jpg

It was looking to dark and muddy so after much analysis and hours of sitting in front of blank panels I decided to make the roads red and green and the hand print patterned land as a white on white piece. Im very excited for how its going.

I’ve decided to make the water areas a neutral grey.

Now I have to build 2 more matching panels to replace the other two grey ones that I started the other way but the overall effect should be worth it.
