Enough talk, let’s take it to the next…

Re(focus) is no good if there is no action to back it up so I broke the bounds that have been holding me back and forced myself back into the work I love so.  As the shackles fall from my wrists and ankles I took off running as if something big and dangerous was chasing me, nipping at my heels.  Four (4) new works started or restarted…

The first painting I started working on is a nude that had a base laid down some time ago, some blue outlines to indicate where I wanted the main figure to be on the page was also laid down.  As a start I started by adding a wash of paint with drips and splatters to get the color vibe going for then started to block in the figure keeping a painterly and loose style through the image.  I felt that it got to a good point and I left it yesterday as it is in the picture below.

Today I went back at it, I fought with the breasts a bit (sounds more fun than it really was) under the hands that I had already blocked out.  I pretty much had to paint over some of what I liked of her left had to get the feeling and light I wanted for the breast/cleavage area.  I also worked on the torso for a bit and added some cooler tones behind her elbow and curve of her waist and added some more splatter to the overall image.  I will post some images of this phase when I can…

I really did not mean for this post to be a talk about process of this painting but I don’t think it is a bad thing especially for the re(focus), talking about what’s on the mind is good…

I have a few commissions lined up that I am going to start in the next few days, along with an opportunity to hang a few paintings at a trendy place downtown, more on that when I have things up though!

Boy, this has been a rambley post, I will shut up now… oh if anyone wants to know more , have questions or wants to commission me out/buy a piece please leave a comment!
