Waiting At Le Diplomate, © 2019, work in progress (click on image for larger view)
This is a blog about painting: specifically, representational fine art, generally, using oil paint. I think a lot about what I'm doing, and those thoughts about subject matter, technique, influences, frustrations and delights all show up here. It's all about the journey.

A Period Of Adjustment
Well, clearly, the workshop had more benefits than I'd originally thought. I'm looking at form in a different way, and taking more time to analyze smaller, less conspicuous shapes. Also, Erin provided the group with a packet of Princeton brushes (a brand I use normally) with different tips than the rounds I paint with. For this next piece below, I used something called a Spotter, and it laid down the paint exactly where I wanted it to go on the shirt and apron. So I'm feeling a bit better about my work and am intrigued to explore the other brushes.
