cutting & stretching canvas for oil interior 3 / by Philip Tarlow

3:13 PM: i made the drawing for canvas 1 (of 2) for oil interior 3 & 4. i'm doing two as an experiment, to see if working on two in tandem allows more freedom and the ability to immediately transfer the discoveries & solutions i make in one to the second canvas. i attached my graphite crayon to a long pole to make the drawing; something i learned from matisse, who did it to let go of control and facility. so far i like it. it allows me to not get caught up in the details and literally get some distance.

12:18 PM: i'm in the process of cutting & stretching canvas for the 32x32" oil interior 3. i should be able to strat the drawing shortly, & will post pics as they become available.
