This painting is 9 x 12 on a canvas sheet done very loosely and very quickly as an exercise to loosen up my style to that of the painters of Old Quebec City area. They have a style in which they use very intense color and they do not pay lots of attention to straight lines and all the other archaic painting rules. Do's & Dont's are cast aside for freedom in strokes and image. I applaud this style.
I"m working on getting to a point that I mimic this style but with my own style dominating. This painting is not yet loose enough.
St. Jean - Old Quebec City Region
I've learned to loosen up a painting style one needs to paint with what I call ABANDONMENT - GUSTO and very little regard for the "standing rules of painting" as well as having a preconceived attitude that your main concern is not how well or "pretty" the painting comes out. I call it "THROWING PAINT AROUND"
Well, I hope you enjoy this "STUDY"
