Have An Ice Day
oil on board
I was asked recently about my paintings. I'm reluctant to post much about them here because the focus of this site is life drawing and gestural life drawing in particular. However, I thought I would post this relic from 2004 for a few reasons.
One: I approached the painting almost entirley from a compositional point of view in that, rather than stay true to the accuracy of the figures, the figures are distorted to fit the composition.
Two: I painted in a very quick gestural way with details in the faces added only at the very last stage. In that way, it relates to the other work posted here.
Three: The hockey season is about to begin and I'm am very excited with the Bruins' decision to go old school with their jerseys!
