New Work Preview

This new piece is based on an image I made quite a while ago and just recently figured out construct a mixed media piece that conveys the feelings of the original photograph.  For this piece I used a variety of techniques including acrylics, aerosol, collage, and copper leaf. This painting is currently for sale here: www.jameswalkerstudios.com

Thank you.

¬†I wanted to take a minute send out a huge thank you to all the art collectors and art lovers and amazing people who have been collecting my work over the years.¬† I am incredibly grateful and I appreciate you more than you know. I have been creating for as long as I can remember, it’s all I really know and the fact that something I’ve created resonates enough that you would want to hang it in your home or office or anywhere at all is beyond words. Thank you.

New Sketchbook Pages

I’m nearly finished with my newest book, filled with the most pages I’ve done in a long time! Here is a preview of some pages that were completed yesterday. I’ve been refining my printmaking technique to be able to add subtle bits of color during the process and I’ll be posting a short tutorial about that soon!

New Sketchbook Pages

Here is a two page spread from my current sketchbook. For this piece I used acrylic and aerosol to create an abstract background. The image is an original photo taken by me and transfered onto the the page using a toner based print making process that I’ve been developing. ¬†I’m particularly happy with the way the lines of the background create a rhythm for the piece and the print making process allows me to work with a digital image in a more analog fashion. ¬†To view more work as well as current work available for sale you can visit my website www.jameswalkerstudios.com
