Texture in my Work

Title: Untitled,

Medium: Oil/acrylic on canvas, 36"x30"

Price: $1000

In this painting, I applied colour in big swathes, with my brush sweeping in side to side motion. When one layer was complete, I allowed it to dry, and then applied another layer. I don't recall how many layers I applied in total. but the were quite a few.

The complementary colour scheme also added to the brightness of the painting.

I did not draw from a model. On most occasions, I draw figures from imagination. That is the reason I have a dreamy quality to my figures, I feel. My figures are not real. But they are not unreal either. They exist in my mind.

Thank you for the "follow"!
Now I see that you are a painter, did you click on my art blog Art Notes (click on pic in rights side bar)?

Love to meet other artists who do not only paint:)
This (your) is an amazing painting style - it reminds me of Frieda Kahlo (wife of Diego Rivera).
