"Solitude", 12x9, oil on Raymar panel
I have been struggling for quite some time now to get comfortable with myself as my art has been evolving into a less colorful and more sedate style of representational art. My recent studies with David Leffel have convinced me that I don't want to just be known as a palette knife artist whose style borders on fauvism. Having not had the luxury of a formal art education, I often have questioned the validity of my art.
So as I struggle to find my voice- my NEW voice- please bear with me.
This painting was done with a brush in colors that were very deliberately muted. I had toned the canvas first with_wait- you won't believe this- dark muddy gray!My goal was to create an atmospheric effect- the kind one feels at the end of an old day or at the promise of a new one. Please tell me if I have achieved a semblance of what I set out to do here as it was much harder for me than smashing a palette knife laden with thick pure paint in a haphazard way across the surface of a support.
