SPORTS SALON EXHIBITION
Freestyle Detail
 
the american pastimes collection of posteresque sports paintings by Mark Smollin
 

Mark paints American sports with a contemporary sense of design, dramatic lighting, passionate color to illustrate the competitive determination of athletes as they move through time and space. He enjoys working on large scale pieces, caressing them with various tools, beginning with broad loose strokes, contrasting simple spaces with areas that are complex and finished with detailed rendering, Canvas is the preferred medium because it is so malleable. All the paintings in this series began with a graphite value drawing for design and placement. Transparent washes of acrylic were added and then more opaque colors applied. Some details were drawn with colored pencil and the finished work sealed with several clear coats of matte varnish. For biographical information read the artist's profile.
