Here is a new painting that I have just finished. This one is a slight shift from what I have been doing recently. In this painting, I wanted to set up something a little more direct that had a little more of an immediate impact.
I felt I needed to work with a broader value range in the composition. For a while now I have been flattening the value range to hide the figure a bit and help develop a sense of mystery around it. To be more direct, I thought I would open open the range and included more areas of increased the detail on this one.
