Three more small acrylics paintings that I recently did. They are 6″ x 6″, acrylics on board prepared with a canvas-like gesso surface.
The common element here seems to be the vertical lines in each one. I think that happens because I really like making thick hard swipes of paint on this surface. The brush glides along so nicely.
Lady Smiling has interesting bold lines and circles which both contrast and mirror the fine lines of her face. Makes you look at her eyes, makes you engage.
Thank you! I think the more I paint the more I focus on the shapes of things and not so much depicting the things – balance and repetition and rhythm of the pieces and getting things in harmony seems very important to me, not just for how it look but for how it feels to me to be doing it. I really appreciate your close attention. Thank you.
