I’ve been changing the way that I build an image in an effort to improve the visual cohesion of the paintings. After I had already started this piece, I was seized by a thought and changed a few somewhat fundamental assumptions about paint application.Then I was faced with a dilemma. I needed to bring the other, already complete sections of the painting along in a similar language. Forging ahead, I’ve been using this piece as the test bed for these new ideas about color and edge.
Amy and I are moving in!
It was a very quiet day out in the park. This may have had something to do with the fact that it was cloudy dark, 34 degrees F and very windy. The weather has turned. I look forward to sketching in the dark rocks that punctuate the shoreline.
I am a few sessions into this drawing. The weather is getting colder and the beach is quieting down.
I’m undergoing some sort of deep change in my painting right now. It’s fascinating and soon I’ll post some images of the evolving idiom.
In the interim, here’s a spiffy drawing from July, 2012
