In these works I am trying to reconcile the collision of industry and nature, city and country, expression and control. The are created by alternating latex paint and water over brushed, layered, and textured backgrounds using a variety of different dry and wet brushing techniques (scumbling, etc.).
These works are created using a number of different programs. The landscape photos are created from photographs and then edited in Adobe Photoshop to create painterly strokes either through filters or direct editing. The animals were painted using the Procreate application on my iPad with an Apple pencil (they are original paintings and are not altered photographs.
