acrylics on canvas
I worked on this painting from 4pm yesterday afternoon until 4 last night, 12 hours straight with just little breaks for eating, and of course time for sitting, watching, feeling, and listening to the next impulse. I love working this way, with no plan in mind other than wanting to do a figure in a semi abstract way.
I spent a lot of time figuring out how to create texture. It is not easy to see in a photo, but I tried taking some pictures, closeups of details.
There is a lot of negative painting involved in this painting, a technique that is becoming more and more prominent in my work.
