Another chilly morning 51 degrees - HOWEVER - that said - and I just said it, it will warm up to the low 70's by noon!!!!! WOO-HOO!!!!! This afternoon we'll go down to Juan Ponce de Leon park again and claim our space on the beach!!!!
Sometimes one is at a loss as to what to paint next - I deal mostly in landscapes and still life. I did quite a few figurative a couple of years ago and although I enjoyed it - the subject is not an easy one. My painting happiness is obtained from quick - loose paintings done in one sitting ( alla prima)
Figurative is a SLOW painting process - very detailed and unfortunately all the pieces parts have to be in the EXACT right place!!!!! PRESSURE - PRESSURE - WAY TOO MUCH.
Soooo me being me I started to do quick - loose figurative which I really enjoy doing so I may start some more of these pieces. I will warn you 99.9% are nude subjects BUT don't get alarmed with my looseness it's difficult to distinguish a butt from a big smile!!! :>)
Any how it will be a while before I jump into these so you'll just have to put up with more landscapes and still life. :>)
I decided to start my next painting out by throwing some paint on to a surface - let it dry and see where I go - what will it be???????? I'll figure that out as I pickup the brush or palette knife and start moving my arm over the surface.
Later my friends.
