A major stretch for me!

September 27, 2010

This painting, of two flamenco dancers preparing for a performance, is the result of a workshop with Nicholas Pearce.  It represents a very large stretch for me in a  number of ways.  The canvass is large – 30 x 40, and the painting is done with a large “trim painting” brush.  The palette is also confined to 4 colours (plus white), and mixing is done on the canvas, not on a palette.

Despite these real challenges, I like the final results!  Interestingly, painting the shawl, which is one of the more subtle and complex parts of the image, took the least time of any area!

I hope you like this new direction.
