images as seen on your monitor appear to be brownish in color,
the actual prints are in fact a duotone printing process. A black
and white photograph, in the printing industry, is referred to
as a halftone image. In the early days of printing
and before we could print full color images, a process was developed
taking a black and white image and over printing it with the same
negative but using a different color of ink, thus creating a two
color image ( or duotone). This method gave an image a different
feel. Weve selected this method using black
and sienna inks to create a rustic image and yet an
earthy feel to these humorous racing scenes.
How were the paintings made?
A. First I do the concept sketches and transfer them to
the illustration board. Next comes the ink line drawing, and finally
the wash layers are applied. The softer tones may have 3 to 5
layers of wash color, while the darkest tones will have 20 or
more layers. Its a very slow process.
Will there be more images?
A. YES! I'm working on new ideas, all the time.
So whats next?
A. The Wacky World of Golf limited edition
series of 4 paintings should be completed very soon, hopefully
in time for the holidays.
