I’ve been exploring varied styles in my paintings to find various niches that may fit. Hanging in my studio is a quote from Pablo Picasso that says, “The fewer the lines, the more important each line.” I’m extrapolating that to also include broad brushstrokes, so I’ve tried to use fewer carefully placed strokes.
Here’s another cowboy hat done in the spirit of the Picasso quote. I especially like the rough strokes of the background and the shadows between the highlighted cheek and nose!
