Posts Tagged ‘expressive painting’

This is a 16×20 stretched canvas with a close up of the focal point. The painting was done expressively using only my hand, although the rest of the body does come into play occasionally, like to stand up! After painting, I noticed the figure on the left and outlined it in charcoal. That was yesterday. Then today, I noticed the figure on the right and outlined it in charcoal as well. The rest of the painting has different textures and colors. This type of painting is very freeing and is the direct opposite of the work of the past several weeks, detailed faces which take much more control, and a paintbrush. I like to work this way in series, as once you get paint all over the hand it is a shame to waste it. More to come this week.
