The Dawn Of Dusk
18 x 24 Chroma Interactive Acrylics on heavy linen canvas paper. I wanted to end 2010 with an experiment in painting. So in a very spontaneous and perhaps spastic manner, I started applying paint every which way and in every possible direction. I used a big brush and worked very quickly wet into wet, alla prima, with no pre-planning or defined objective. At one point I was using a brush in both hands just have a lot of fun. The result after 30 minutes of this is "The Dawn Of Dusk." YES, I was quite sober as the only beverage I drink is diet A&W root beer. It was a very liberating experience and I must say the most fun I've had in a painting session.
