This blog - I'm Wes Rehberg - is dedicated to what I'm up to in writing and in the visual arts. I have a site also for experimental video art work called "The Video Curio Theater" at http://blog.rehberg.net. The theater is open.
Progression -- working on "Edgewater View," acrylic painting on a 24" x 30" canvas, hearkening back to a late '60s photo of mine, adapted for this -- working on inner space dynamics here with color, shape and perspective as well that may take a moment to see ...
Except for little touchups, it's done ...
Trying shading for shapes and tone ...
Underlay basically painted --
First stage, beginning with color underlays on some of the forms --
I’m seeing two styles now in my work with soft, hard
and oil pastels on papers of both toothed and smooth surfaces, the more edgy
style in the two works above with more representational colors, and the smoother looking one in the two works below with more adventurous colors. I’m leaning now to continue in
the style below.
"Forest Gateway," hard and soft pastel on
11" x 14" medium surface paper, from my photo at our cabin (future home) in upstate
NY, first since we arrived for our 2-week stay here -- not quite sure it's
finished, letting it sit for a while.
