"Swept" | 12x12 inch | oil on panel.
I decided to do some additional work to this one before delivering it to the gallery. I'm always trying to find a "flow" that works for each composition and subject. Sometimes that flow reveals itself right away and sometimes I need to put it aside to give my eyes a chance to look at it in a new way.

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.

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
