INDUSTRIAL LANDSCAPES part 3…constructions

Not satisfied with the clay mono types, with or without pastels, and still feeling like something was missing using just pastels, I did what any self-respecting  artist would do…turned to another combination of mediums.

In my first attempt at constructions I used primarily scale modeling material from my model railroading days, combined with acrylic paints, pastels, and India ink.

Emboldened my the success of the feed mill I moved on to larger, more ambitious works, adding to my resources a variety of scraps of wood, plastic pieces, and small junk that model railroaders seem to accumulate.

Each construction measures approximately 20x48"

Next post...the shadow box industries
