Sketchbook pages (15): Visual ideas for my project – photograph transfer

Working with photographic images as base (taken from location):

From my initial photo shots from location (see:  http://ocapainting1.stefanschaffeld.com/?p=3443)  of the deteriorating residential building I printed out a few photos on regular paper with my inkjet printer, and transferred them with acrylic adhesive to my sketchbook. A technique I experimented with earlier with own color studies – see at: Part 2 ‘Sketchbook pages (7) – Experiment with plastic‘.

  • Transferred inkjet printed photograph, acrylic adhesive, crayon:

=> I printed the image on normal paper with my normal inkjet printer, nothing fancy. Partly peeling off the backside paper and disclosing the underlying image. Reminds me of ‘Sgraffito’ technique that I explored earlier – click here, not with paint but with soft paper as the scratch layer. Adding with crayon (watersoluble) marks for a surrounding scene, washes. At the bottom glued pieces left from the peeling-off act – reflecting on the process of peeling-off.

  • Transferred inkjet printed photograph, acrylic adhesive, acrylic paint:

=> as above, this time with overpainting, expressive to extend the image of the photograph and to add another layer of meaning

I would like to explore these ideas further (image transfer, overpainting photos) and will look at approaches by Gerhard Richter and Andrew Haire as suggested by my tutor.
