The painting blog of Marc R. Hanson
These are all magnificent....you have a great sense of style and color.
Hi Theresa. Thank you for your comments on my work. I'm sorry to be kind of delinquent in replying on this 'blog' thing. I love it but forget that it's there, especially when busy. You write a lot on yours, admirable!!! Your work is beautiful too. The piece 'Of Saints and Sinners' is stunning!!! I'm going to keep abreast of what you're doing too. Right now it's "frame, pack, ship...go broke...time'. Possibly the closest thing to what it must be like to have a real job and not be an artist. Whew. I prefer the 'art' job.Take care.
Shady Spot is my favorite - but, that's not to say that I don't like the Fr. Quarter garish pieces......they pick up the character of that part of N.O. ohso well...........but, Shady Spot is my favorite of this group........picks up the sense of a row of shotgun houses down Magazine Street or someplace like that......I really like the nocturne from the set a few posts back - forget the title.............it's the first one on that post. really grabs that sense of summer night! Good luck getting everything ready for the show!
Thanks for sharing your work, Marc. I couldn't pick a favorite -they are all so wonderful. Thanks also for sharing your technique of the "Viva Wash" for pastels. It's so helpful with those first layers.
Anonymous... There was so much to paint in N.O. that choosing what would say how I saw the city wasn't easy. I haven't even touched on the Mignary neighborhood, a spectacular place that we sketched too. Thanks.donna... Thanks. That 'Viva' wash isn't working for me as well on the UArt paper as it did on Wallis paper. So I've been using a little piece of 1/2" green upholstery foam in it's place. The grit of UArt that I use is too aggressive and leaves little shards of paper towel in the way. It's disappointing. The Viva towels were such a sensitive way to manipulate the pastel.
