New Dance Painting

"Flow", mixed media, 32 x 21"

"Flow" is a little different style than my previous paintings. Using a limited palette and few details, I focused more on the movement of the gesture than on detail and description. I started with a large 2" flat brush for the sweeping movement of the background. I left the white of the paper for areas of the figure and added features and clothing with smaller brushes while the painting was still wet. Although it looks as though it was done quickly, the painting took several days to complete.
