Covered Wagon – Three Artistic Presentations

Anytime I create an art print, I have typically worked the subject matter into different forms and presentations. When I hit a look I like, I spend more time working it into a “final product”. Sometimes I end up with more than one version. If I feel strongly about the final presentation in each version, I will keep them. Having said that, I do try and limit it to no more than three of anyone subject matter. Today’s blog features a covered wagon I photographed in the Sharlott Hall Museum in Prescott, Arizona.

The first example is the covered wagon created using a black and white sketching technique.

The next version takes the B&W sketching technique and inserts color creating a color sketching of the wagon.

The third version uses an impasto painting technique which creates a completely different look for this covered wagon. This painting style creates strong and bold brush strokes.

      Lol….love the analogy!! It’s amazing how the same subject matter takes on a completely different look depending on color and style of presentation!! Thanks for the feedback and for stopping by!!

    I have so much respect for artists like yourself, Kirk. And sometimes I wonder what goes through your mind in what they you aspiring to achieve. I can understand why more than one version. These three versions are all amazing. It is good that you try and limit it to no more than three of any one subject matter. It can get quite complicated otherwise. Thank you for sharing! 🖼😀

      Thanks Carl!! I’m a visual thinker…I visually picture everything I think. With that, I like to try different presentations if a subject to see what I like the most. In the majority of cases, it’s one style. Yet there are those times I like more than one in cases like I showed. Thanks for stopping by and for the feedback….much appreciated! Hope all is well with you and your family!! Have a great week!!
