River West Artworks
Original Art, Artisan Works and Photographs by Jan Jenkins and Brian Erickson

"Windfall" *SOLD*

"Windfall" (10.5x13.5") was inspired by artist and friend Dave Yeo's west coast photo, which he provided to our art group for a group painting challenge last month. My interpretation became a cropped portrait version of his photo. I purposely shifted the brush line between the 2 trees, minimized the deadfall branches and placed rocks and more textured grasses in the foreground. I executed this artpiece with oil pastels on acid free paper using a sgraffito technique. Practiced in Italy since the 1730’s, sgraffito is an old and beautiful “subtractive” method of creating images by scraping away a surface of medium in patterns and shapes to expose underlying layer(s) of color..
