I am entering this piece as both the monthly theme and as a part of the Da Vinci Experiment. Since Leonardo Da Vinci was a sculptor, I decided to try to sculpt a painting, using only 3″ sponge rollers to apply the paint. I started from the outside of the page, pushing inward with the rollers, to achieve a feeling of sculpting the form. At the end, I used the rollers to add definition to the inside of the form. This acrylic painting was the result.

Size of work ( either cm or inches) 26″ X 40″

Style Abstract Figurative

Technique, Medium & material used Acrylic Paint on Paper

Date work was completed (only submit work of the current year) October 2013

  1. Thanks for your submission. Congratulations on your successful use of the rollers. This is a very gestural work with a good rhythm following the light areas along the figure. I hope to see more of your art works.

  2. I looked at your website and it looks like this work is the beginning of something new, more physical vs. the pop flatness; I like the direction and look forward seeing how your old work and currant research will eventually merge;

  3. And a wonderful result it is. The design element in your use of the space is excellent and your light values create a substantial impact. I really like the feel of the spontaneity that reflects a freshness of nothing over worked. Very good.

  4. Thank you for the precise description of your process which certainly requires spontaneity but a good knowledge of the human body & a sure gesture. I suppose a little physical engagement as well. Your use of lights makes it very plastic, like expected. waiting for the pleasure to see more from you.
