Watercolor right now, Lots of Oil on large canvases in the past. Draw, sketch, and do computer art.
Finding that perfect image, composing and working to express it in a powerful way. Studying the masters, leaning their techniques, understanding what and how they found ways to express, often the un-expressable. Feelings, holding them long enough to catch them, examine them, become the master of them, and expressing them in a way others can see and feel. That fleeting moment when someone understands. Skill, draftsmanship and mastry of the tools of expression. That feeling you have, when you look up from your work, realize the time has passed without your knowing and you feel rested like a nap. Really insightful, engaging conversations with creative people.
Painting watercolor, working to enhance, recompose and tweek an image in Photoshop. Until the composition, perspective and color fits and you can begin the process of hand work in art and painting.
Not yet, one piece on another site, graciously placed there by the owner. http://www.jssgallery.org/Other_Artists/Ron_Webb/Ron_Webb.html The site is dedicated to my all time favorite artist John Singer Sargent.
Worked in Graphics for 40 years this June. Very grateful to be still gainfully employed and ready to drop the mouse and pick up the brush again. Minor in collage in fine at, painted off and on throughout the years. Looking to a future in fine art.
