Thanks everyone! I am having a fun time writing this book. Developing the characters. They are alive in my head. Others like Timberlake who is a koala bear...Miss Titmouse who is a mouse but is the post mistress... LOL

Ruby is a librarian. She hovers magically, but runs like a horse. Had a heck of a time turning her forward so to draw frontal illustrations. mentally took feathers off to think how she is build under there, so she can run like a horse. Man! I finally got through it. She likes fancy things, makes herbals. Her wizard is Poldara.

This is a bronze sculpture, made by developing a Styrofoam sculpture first. There was a special glue, and a hot wire to cut the Styrofoam. Once done, it was packed in sand, co2 and another component which was mixed so it would harden.We mad boxes of plywood first. Places some sand in the box (the box was two boxes which would be strapped together to make one unit. The with one half we began by filling it packing it tight as we could around the Styrofoam sculpture. There was a hole at the top to help us fill and pack sand too. The tighter the sand was around the Styrofoam the more of the structure stayed true to your intended shape. See the rough areas that is where it was not packed as tight. But I liked it. The the bronze was poured after it was melted. It evaporates the Styrofoam taking the shape of the sculpture. After the task was to sand blast as much as you wanted, and I think sand it...This was the results of mine. This was a fabulous experience. These are very heavy.

This is a great example of what I call mono shibui. The foundation is made on a glass surface and then lifted off...It gives depth. behind the action art.

After years of being an artist I went for a degree...in my 30's...added a lot of tools and ideas... This image is in response to my husbands love for me...Thomas was a bachelor in his 40's when we met...I am very lucky...after a not so good marriage...The After the Rain CD reminds me musically of his courting me...how he it is between us...LOL now we are fuddy duddies perhaps in others eyes...But the thing is you metamorph together...the outside of you does not matter anymore...its the inside and your love for one another that matters most. In the mind we will always be one.

Nice work. It's fun trying to decide whether you just splatted the paint and then did your outlines, or whether you did the outlines first and then added the color.

Pejj NUNES 28 months ago
Chuck Middlekauff, Hello!In 2011 I wanted to be creative on day, so I put some Reeve BFK on the floor, began throwing watercolor, tipped turned the page and blew the watercolor around... "action art" Then out loud to myself I said:OK! WHAT'S THERE?" Well I found things...they were islands of cartoon like characters on those first pages. Then I found one I called Ocean Rider. A whole page! This has now sold, for good money too! But to back track...I look to find what is there, this is what I call "found image art" I use the edges as far as I can...using micron pen and complete what I have found. The last step is pastel pencils. It is a whole project. You can read more on my website. I am looking for other artist to try Shibui Found Image Art. It is a book project and in the it the goal is to help a whole lot of people who would benefit from it or just to get people creative.

Gary Hopkins I love the delicacy too I use black micron pens 005 and 05.
Pejj NUNES 28 months ago
I use the pastel pencils to enhance the watercolor. The watercolor is manipulated then allowed to dry. I use salt, etc to create texture.

Shibui Begins with action art. Other names for this same sort of thing are: action painting, gesture painting, and Tachisme. I am writing an article about this at this time and will put it on the website. I wanted to find and understand art that was similar. My process is to put the paper on the floor and spatter, drip, drop, splash watercolor on the surface, blot it, at texture to it by using salt or oatmeal etc...absorbing materials. Once dry scrape them off. This is the foundation layer. Then I find what is there. Bring it out. I never know what I will find. I began this in 2011. And I am still doing it. I am developing for an art therapy tool. My target groups are those who want to learn Shibui, and those who use art therapy. I have an instructional book I am writing. So far others who try Shibui come up with things that are unique to them. No two shibui are alike! If you need to get creative its a great way to jump into creativity. If you look up those types of art..you can see the idea is not new...though I do not know of any finding things...only with sculpture...but they say nothing is new under the sun. Maybe Shibui will become a movement of its own. Shibui means hidden things and cool and many other things too...a room can be shibui, clothes can be shibui...regarding the many other meanins that is. You can read more about it on my website. And you can see the work of my interns.

I love this. The colors are nicely blended.
Pejj NUNES 23 months ago
I approach it this way...I think of how to make it have perspective, depth, dimension, and create a road map for the viewer...Color will do this...These feel like they are engineered...like when you paint on glass...you have to give in and let them tell you what they need...the lines are simple....What you find is not complete...it is like finding something in the clouds or a stain... Your mind finishes it so you can say that looks like a.... Skills do not matter...although if you have them the contribute much. Just following the edges of the watercolor makes for a beautiful Shibui. I use watercolor, any wet medium will work, watered down acrylic or ink... then micron pens...05 and 005 my favorites...black. The last phase is done with pastel pencils. I plan to do inktense as well. Make my own inks from natural things...not sure how archival they will be. I use watercolor paper and print making papers.

What kind of paper is this on? Do you wet it first?
Barbara Lemley  likes this
Pejj NUNES 23 months ago
You can wet and bleed into it. Reeves BFK is my favorite. It has weight and holds the water....Just a wash over with a brush. You can make shapes like the leaves of a flower or its pedals....and bleed into these shapes.

beautiful combination of colors
Pejj NUNES 28 months ago
With this I started with Payne's Grey as the base color. The platter is done with straws. I love the randomness of action art. Some images are just what they are this sort of explosive nature. The trick is how to get depth of field. It is reverse engineering of a sort. You know the outcome of traditional work. However...the rules if you will of shibui often are (1) every thing happens down the middle of the page...and (2) can not be erased...it has to "just be" It does not mean its a bad thing...whene view from a viewing distance it reads right as a landscape....up close its a where's waldo of the shibui mark.

Biography

 
 
 
The Shibui Found Image Art Project

The purpose of the Shibui Found Image Art Project is to further develop Shibui Found Image Art; that its creative process is easily but fully understand.

The purpose behind developing Shibui is to write an instructional book which will help others to understand the process of building the Shibui's foundation, finding the images in the foundations composition , and develop what is found and bring the Shibui to completion.

Once it is understood how to master the foundation and deal with the variances of a Shibui's nature, the process is understood. At this point it can then be elaborated on by bringing other mediums into the process, as well as working the Shibui in other ways with new approaches.

Once the process is developed fully, an instructional book will be published that art therapist and others can use as a tool or to instruct Shibui themselves.

I believe Shibui would be a great art therapy tool and that those creating Shibui will find it a rich experience. I believe it will help people with their emotional, mental, physical and spiritual well being because of its creative process.

If you'd like to support the SFIA Project I thank you!. Your support will help with materials to develop Shibui in new ways. If you would like to ask questions, please do!
