I just finished a commission of large 'City' drawings that involved a bit of cautious color. These drawings will be heading to Sao Paulo and the imagery seems appropriate to a city of that size.
|Michael McGuire - 4 'City' Drawings - Acrylic Paint on Paper - 40 x 26 inches each|
These drawings required me to look at both the acrylic paint and the paint pens I had on-hand and I ended up making a series of samplers that looked something like these. I had more earlier in the month but I have been giving them away as gifts. They are small and definitely have the feel of a study. My immediate impulse are the psychedelic color combinations. I was all those early rock posters on which I was raised. I think too that is has something to do with challenging my eyesight which becomes weaker every year.
Directly from these came a series of small city studies. Each of these are sized at 8.5 x 5.5 inches.
