JESSE WAUGH Paintings 2016
I'm happy to release my 2016 catalogue. I think I've made a lot of progress this year. Following is from the Introduction to the book:
I feel I made great progress this year in my technique. I’ve been engaging in heavy experimentation with tonal values, and have been able to achieve a verisimilitude which had been lacking in my previous paintings.
I had the opportunity to study the works of Bellini, Titian, Tintoretto and Veronese, on a recent trip to Venice. Italian Renaissance painting in general is far from photorealistic - except perhaps for Caravaggio. I hope to be able to strike a balance between adequate illusion and personal expression -- all in the service of Pulchrism.
