Art: Walker Boys by Artist Tina Marie Ferguson
This is part drawing, part painting, part altered photography and cut & layered papers. These guys truly show the sibling relationship when all rivalries are forgotten or undeveloped. The photo image of the two boys was photo shopped (multi-filtered) and printed out, faded b&w, on 140 lb. water color paper. Color was added using prismacolor pencils and is highly burnished. I used the white pencil for most of the blending/burnishing. The back ground is a collaged scene done separately and is mostly cut papers. I used tissue and mulberry as well as heavier colored papers, but no card stock. Some of the shapes were enhanced with acrylic paints, glazes, or colored pencils. The two figure were cut out and mounted on black foam core and then the foam core was cut to shape. This was adhered to the background scene. All was sealed with several coats of glossy varnish. I used a primed masonite panel for the base.
