More Gut Listening
Pursuant to Puff Ball's painting on Monday, I bring you Frolic.
Painted mostly with a wedge and my fingers, with a conscious effort to lose edges, and a focus on super fun color. And size - if you haven't noticed, I've been painting larger lately, too - and this one carries some moderate texture.
I'm liking this approach. A lot. It's a new way of capturing energy and motion, all the while allowing me to also dabble with the abstract qualities of the composition.
What do you think? I'd love to hear your ideas on loosening up while still retaining the essence of the subject matter.
Thanks, as always, for following along with my artwork!
