>WIP Brain Painting No.5 on the Brain and Sleep

>

Hello!!

This post is to share with you in progress shots of the next painting in the Brain series focusing on the Brain and Sleep. I have plenty of research experience in this area as all of you. In case you didn’t know, we spend about a third of our life sleeping and it’s something we certainly cannot live without.

So what’s happening in our Brain when we dose off? 
Well I’ll get into that when I post the finished painting (which will be soon). Until then here are some shots of the piece in progress. ENJOY!

Work in progress post: (wired brain) #3 in the Brain series

November 17, 2010 Leave a comment

Hello ladies and gentlemen,


While I continue to work towards completing at least one painting a month, I wanted to keep you posted on what I’ve been up to on a fairly regular basis. 


Here are a couple of in progress pics of my latest painting (title to be determined):




The third painting in my Brain series involves a brain that is both made from and hanging from wire. Through a good friends suggestion, real wire will be incorporated into the piece. It will at least be what the brain is hanging from. An idea for how it would be attached to the canvas was found while visiting artist studios in hoboken recently. It will be a cool addition to the piece (thanks Kathleen for the idea). 


The hands in the painting are my own. I haven’t decided what my sleeves will be. The sketch on canvas of my hands were done on casting a shadow over the canvas, so my right hand sketched the sillouhette of my left hand and my left hand managed to sketch my right hand. Adjusting the distance between my hand and the canvas was an easy way to get the hands the size i wanted them to be in the painting. At some point I’ll take a picture of my hands in those positions so I can paint the detail when the time comes.


Explanation of why the brain is made of wire will be included in my post once the painting is completed (aiming for the end of this month). Stay turned and thank you for our interest in my work- I greatly appreciate it!
