|My computer-generated rendering that demonstrates approximately how the finished mural will appear.|
A pail of red glaze all ready for application. The acrylic pigment is very concentrated and for my purposes must be diluted to a semi-transparent state for glazing over the original orange glaze. All of the subsequent glazes yet to come will be similarly transparent/translucent so that in the end all of the global glazes will retain their power while interacting in varying degrees with their fellow glazes..one big happy family of co-existing hues in a full-spectrum tonal analysis.
Even with the addition of just the second ( of a total of about 10-12 glazes at least) the red glaze, you can see how the forms immediately start to pop.
Rolling down the plank rail in front of the mural with paint-brushes flying...
A good day's work gets me to about the half-way point of the 80' wall.
Dennis Sather caught me up on the scaffold just as I was getting close to finishing the eighty-foot pass with the red glaze at the eight foot level.
The 'skyline' begins to appear as the red glaze is completed at the horizon.
