Luscious, sumptuous, delicious, perfection describes this jewel of a painting by Lisa Hannick,"Watermelon and Grapes", Oil on Linen, 8"x10" In the artist's words:"My paintings are a reflection of classical art. There are many layers of paint, each one drying before a subsequent layer can be applied. This defines the classical approach. I begin quite loosely and abstract with shapes appearing intrinsically. I work quickly, covering the entire canvas. Soon, the painting develops and evolves. If this technique is abandoned, the spontaneity is lost and the painting risks becoming contrived and overworked. With each layer comes more paint, building up into thick, juicy, lusciousness – thus the painterly approach."
