I spend a lot of time making, altering and mixing paint. It's interesting to see how it behaves, but in the end, you have to do something with it. A lot of my 'studies' are me messing with these materials and seeing how they perform.
This piece was really interesting in many ways. Great details and looks very dimensional but it's flat. I am often drawn to smaller scale art, because it, should, force you to engage with it if you want to view it properly. When a work is larger, the scale provides you the luxury of not having to approach it or inquire as much. I love larger works because of the dramatic appeal, but I feel that it can be a crutch or an easy out. That being said, I have been working on larger pieces and it has been the hardest challenge of my career, working like I do.
