@alsart I don’t really like to talk about what a painting means, I may or may not know what it means to me but once I put that painting out there in the world I feel it can mean whatever it wants to the person observing it and that that shouldn’t be influenced by my ideas. It will be something a little different to everyone!Technically I was just trying not to blend too much, think through each brush stroke, check my color and pay attention to the direction of my brush strokes. Also, and this is a result of the John Singer Sargent study I did a few months ago- I try to minimize intentional detail and really keep it simple. Oddly, people seem to be seeing this as one of my most detailed paintings- it really isn’t. Simple brushwork seems to make things look more realistic, but look at the hands- almost no detail at Well said,, brilliant painting , your paintings look similar to a Scottish artist Jack Vettriano ...
Beautifully excuted. And intriguing.
