When less is more

Update 7/16

I’ve mentioned that I’m looking at new directions to take my painting, and despite having a couple of pieces underway that aren’t clean breaks, I definitely see this small series as a big step away from some aspects of work from the last two years to refocus on line and color (with much less emphasis on surface and implied space). The series follows through on some of the things that happened in the (finished) piece in the middle of the top row of the gallery below, which was a follow through on the study at the top left. Studies and early progress shots in this first gallery.

Despite what looks like a lot of planning, the drawings are, as always, intuitive reactions to an initial set of marks, and a good bit of the color, line and application decisions are also made “in the flow”
