This is the finished oil painting study on paper. Today was the fourth session. I think it conveys a movement forward as I mentioned previously. I appplied more flecks of paint and color all geared to stutter the viewer's eye a bit. I'm happy with the surreal look of the piece. As painting can be an invention, I'm attracted to bending the possibilities of it. Sometimes the look and paint approach can achieve this if the subject is strange enough.Depending on the appearance of light and how it plays on shapes defining a subject, reality can also appear surreal.
My work is often from my head and I rely on memory and an arsenal of techniques and color play from years of experiments and experience. I guess a bit like a conductor of music who knows the sounds of all the instruments.
