Acrylic on canvas 15 x 18"
This is my second participation in an Exquisite Corpse ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exquisit…
)collaborative project with Bernard Dumaine: bernardumaine.deviantart.com/
Bernard painted the central 50% of the painting, and I painted the top and bottom 25% portions. When it was my turn to paint, all I could see was an exposed inch of his work and I was to continue on without knowing what else he had done. It's very interesting exercise, to say the least! First there is trying to match the first artist's style (application and color) and attempting a seamless as possible transition from one hand to another. Then, one tries to work with a composition when half of it is a complete mystery- it is certainly an exercise in letting go!
It was a great deal of fun to finally unwrap it after months of only knowing a small percentage of what Bernard had done, I let out a great laugh of joy when I saw what he'd done!
As this is a collaboration and I am only partially responsible for this art, please visit Bernard's page and give him comments and favs here: fav.me/d8yaufu
Update: I have uploaded 2 animated .gif files of the painting in progress: fav.me/d8ybrqx fav.me/d8ybovu
