Just experimenting and playing around these last two posts with ideas. A little cliche, but the possibilities are endless.
Different artists work in different ways. Up until now, I’ve always been dependent upon reference photos. Didn’t always create an exact replica, but had something to go by.
In my new venture to ‘Let it Go‘, I thought I’d try a few straight off the top of my head. I’ve wanted to loosen up my work for quite some time now and although this painting style isn’t what I call ‘loose’ or ‘painterly’, by forcing myself to create without a reference I’ve loosened up the limitations.
