Progress shot for the second painting in the upcoming "Paint Pusher" group show at the Heritage Gallery. The theme is light and dark at the show. After working on this one I realized I need to do a little more work on yesterday's painting I posted. I have some interesting ideas to make these two paintings play off each other.
I'll call this one "Integrate". .

For this painting I focused on how I could better incorporate larger gestural marks using a mix of brush and knife. Sometimes I get a little too carried away with the knife early in the painting process which tend to get in the way of later brush and knife strokes. Of course the constant struggle is knowing when to stop.

"Forward" | 30x30 inch | oil on panel

Forgot to post this finished painting. "Lull" | 9x12 inch | oil on panel. I really went all out on this one trying to create a bunch of interesting textures. A progress photo is also available in a previous post.

Progress shot of a new painting. Almost there, just need to soften the transition from light to dark. #portrait #figurative #arts_gate #fineart #art #artwork #artist #instaart #contemporaryart #oil #oilpainting #painting #artoftheday #creative #picoftheday #modernart #interiordesign #drawing #draw #illustration #sketch #sketchbook #style #beautiful #inspiration #picture #gallery #abstraction #color #artgallery
Progress shot of a new painting. Usually these smaller ones are just quick studies, but I'm going to push this one a bit further to get some interesting textures. Sorry for being away so long. It was a crazy month.
