“Think Again” is my translation of Wendy Brusca’s
Belly


Belly
by Wendy Brusca

As you can see below, I have started with a very basic vine charcoal drawing. From there, I start to block in areas of color, not worrying at all about stroke, actually the messier the better at this point in my opinion. I want loads of texture at the end result of this piece and I am not even half way there.
As I start to add more vibrant colors such as the red/orange……I will spray it with a spray bottle and control the run…..letting it drip mostly down. I have learned to work back and forth laying it flat and then tipping it from side to side.
As I start to build up the layers again I spray with a fine mist and this will allow me to use a pointed object to scrape lines and textures into the paint to reveal the colors and textures behind.
It is typical that I will think much of my work is lost, but in fact it always comes through. I just keep working back and forth.
Next I will increase the depth and add more detail to the guy with the mask. I can’t say what he will do with that foot, but watch out, it could be explosive.

IN THE END, HE WAS KEPT IN THE SHADOWS AND THE WORLD WAS SAFE AND SOUND, AT LEAST THAT’S HOW IT TURNED OUT IN MY UNIVERSE
Thanks for viewing “Think Again” a translation of “Belly”
