At first glance, it might just look like a muddy mess of swirls and twirls of paint. I started a new art class a few weeks ago called, Experimentation with Paint, taught by Jordan Wolfson. It's a lot of fun to learn to paint in a completely different style than ever before and in some ways it reminds me of my early days of painting with fingerpainting where I just painting through feeling the paint and the paper rather than purposefully placing each stroke on a canvas. In this painting, we started with a simple still life and just 4 colors: black, white, yellow ochre and red. We blocked in the shape and then used cross-contour lines to create a feeling of space. Painting space? Connecting shapes? Feeling the movement of a still life? I tried it all, and above is what resulted. Pretty cool for a still life, I think.
