I have been experimenting with Palette knife techniques (hence the cloud city painting). My latest painting is a nude created with palette knife. I have been doing some nudes in reverse with black and white and attempting to loosen up my painting techniques. by reverse I mean I start with a black ground and build with white. it is giving me an interesting perspective on lights and shadows and on my patience as a painting has to dry in order to build further into the light scale. I am actually blending only on the canvas and working on loosening up my techniques and working with the whole painting rather than the individual details. it creates a personality to the works that I have not had previously.
In other news I have found an old website design I did that I hated at the time but now I really like it. I am updating it and might even release it to the general public. you never know.
