MONMOUTH MUSEUM | JURIED WATERCOLOR EXHIBITION

The Golden Scandal is currently featured in The Monmouth Museum's Juried Watercolor Exhibition, Traditional to Modern.  

Duplicity cloaked in eroticism, a well-executed plan in high stakes operations.  Alluring in her every movement, reptilian markings camouflage a prominent stiletto designed to directly penetrate.

- R. Derrick

Using a combination of self-directed photography, life observation and archived source materials,  The Golden Scandal was intended to personify fashionable accessory beyond narrative still life.  After a series of successful color studies were executed, the desired proportions were drawn freehand onto a final piece of hot pressed watercolor paper.  Delicate graphite contours were refined to set the framework for a multi-layering technique of gouache, ink and aquarelle pencil.

MONMOUTH MUSEUM - NILSON GALLERY | MEMBERS MINIATURES: BIG ART IN SMALL PACKAGES

The Monmouth Museum exhibits a diverse collection of small works in their Members Miniature: Big Art in Small Packages, opening. All works will be on display in the Nilson Gallery until March 12, 2017.

A miniature portrait with a grand persona, “Center Stage” spotlights the authentic talent and confidence of natural performers. Poised and direct, the subject engages her audience with little more than a gaze, as she emerges through the overhead lighting to reveal her presence. Using a combination of self directed photography and observational sketches, this portrait was directly executed onto a toned sketch book page. A soft application of graphite powder provided the base structure and underdrawing for the built up of carbon and graphite pencils. Selected areas were further heightened with white charcoal.
