Oil on 5x7 hardboard.
This is for the WDE at Wet Canvas. The reference was supplied by Elizabeth.
Tried a new approach with this one...Keeping the paint unblended, I loaded the brush much like a palette knife-placed the paint with one or two strokes-went back and re loaded. This process hopefully produces a lot of beautiful color blends throughout the painting plus plenty of texture. One of my thoughts on this technique is to carefully observe what the paint does...What really counts is what's happening in the paint and the composition...subject matter is secondary.
Maybe I'm way off base with this, But I really enjoyed dabbling in the abstract a bit more than usual. Let me know your thoughts on this approach.
