Studio Projection - New Tools
Here is my new set up for projecting in the studio that has replaced my old school style overhead projection set up that I had used since college. I saw an artist at Quality Pictures in Portland before her opening using this same set up to do graphics on the walls surrounding her paintings that were being displayed and I couldn't get it out of my mind that I wanted to have the same ability. I had been wanting a new computer for several years, having been on an iMac for nearly eight years. So with the last set of commissions I went and purchased a new MacBook Pro, and digital projector. It has helped in my ability to be much more fluid and in the moment, than I was with transparencies. I can adjust my drawings in the computer via Photoshop if they aren't quite working on the canvas. It's been one of the best tool purchases of mine in several years, and has really helped in keeping a nice flow and rhythm for the lastest work that I've been making.
