The Seasons

Keith Moreau
“The Seasons”
Scratchboard

This piece entitled “The Seasons” was created in scratch board on a full sheet from a still life that I set up in my home studio. The items in the still life represent the individual seasons. I achieved the background by scratching most of it away and coming back in with brush and India ink and quickly created random strokes which left wispy light areas for the background. Note that the cast shadows on the surface are untouched by the scratch tool.
For years, I have taught many youth, teens and adults this art of white line drawing.
Accepted in 1997 Arts Etobicoke Juried Show.

7-Down

“7-Down”
Serigraph
16″ X 18″

“Seven Down” is a limited edition elimination stencil serigraph (screen print). I drew the layout and then traced it to the fabric of the screen. Screen block out was applied to the screen fabric where I wanted the paper to stay white. I then printed the first colour which was the light green. The ink covered the entire area where the white wasn’t. I kept blocking further and further areas as I print each colour. The last area open to receive ink was for the final colour which was the red. The technique is called elimination since you eliminate areas of the open screen between each colour.
Seven Down is in various collections including the City of Toronto Art Collection.

Pen & ink
21.5″ X 33″

“Father Time” was created using a Sharpie pen. It is a large piece and took 20 to 30 hours to draw. The hair is different years from various centuries, the flesh is watches, the edge of the nose and interior of the mouth is the months of the year and the tone of the iris is the days of the week.
