PONDERELLA, Watercolor Painting by Samuel Austin

$3,000

About

Ponderella, Watercolor Painting by Samuel Austin Watercolor and Ballpoint Pen, Coated with a barrier layer of Acrylic and then UV inhibitor, backed by canvas and gessoed. Ponderella is an experiment with Ballpoint pen at first and then with watercolor over time. Down at the signature you can see it was dated three times. It is one of the only paintings in my collection with this distinction. Much of the exploration in this painting has found its way into future work. Because of that I consider it a transitional work. Biography Through a process of creation/destruction/experimentation, back and forth I work on the paper. Gradually, I tease out the image. Nothing is predetermined. I use a very limited palette of watercolor pigment, gesso and ballpoint pen. I try to think of these materials in a very basic way. I have paper. I have pigment. And I have an emotional reaction to the subject matter. I try to work directly on the paper surface without field sketching or erasing. My goal is to preserve the freshness of the painting and reveal my beliefs about beauty by using the materials and treating the surface in these ways.
