Green

I am going green!(but only in the background of certain paintings)
I painted this a couple years ago and really kind of like it. It's my wife again but this one had a more quickly painted, in a more simple style. The background turned out well because of it's contrasting color and the looseness, in my opinion. I really liked the background behind her but it got a little mushy looking in the front. Truth is, loose painting is very much harder then tight. Oil on board 11"x14"

I can assure you it wasn't feigned interest, David!

Personally, I visit your blog for both your traditional and caricature work. They both blow my socks off.

I wish I could paint oils like this. Stunning piece.

this works really well! I dig the kind of moments you catch in these pieces, you know, the feeling of happy times, no worries, maybe it's because of the green! ^^
bravo!
