I moved over here from Post your paintings because it is not considered realism. I hope this is ok here.
in painting, my first love has always been realism and thanks to Mark and his techniques I enjoyed building my own foundations. I love the detail in realism and also the time spent learning other techniques like glazing, stumbling, and much more. I have stepped away front photographs as a reference and have moved toward quick sketches from memory and life. I have combined the sketches with my favorite style of abstract and added the details of realism. I kind of refer to it as ContempoCubism.
the story behind Springtime in the Commons.
visiting my son in Boston last spring we enjoyed a very nice day at Boston Commons. The swan boats, ducks, swans, and the way the cityscape blended in.
Here is 4 recently completed. They are all done in oils on canvas.
