New Painting

I did a painting last night.  It has been quite a while since I painted.  It’s called “Living Abandon” and is 30 x 30, acrylic on canvas.  Colors I would not typically use.  Jennie said it reminded her of an abandoned building with vines growing on it.  Hence the name.

New Painting Style

I am working on a painting in a style I have never painted in before.  (And also in a color combination that I do not typically use.)  The painting is pretty much done, but I need to tweak it a little.  I like the result; it is quite a departure from my existing styles.  I used a palette knife to scrape and spread the paint I had already applied, making short, quick strokes.  I typically use a palette knife to apply thick strokes of paint.

I think it is important as an artist to keep trying new things and to continue to grow and evolve.  The painting is called “The Butterfly Effect”.  It will be posted on my art site by this weekend.
