Some serious power in this one • • October 24, 2017
I really like this picture. The strokes went down with such punch, and so much artifact – you know, stray marks and ragged side passages that happened all on their own, actually don’t make sense, and yet somehow fit perfectly. They add just the right atmosphere. I also learned that big gray swipes can be ethereal.
I wish all of this was in my work all the time, but as you’ve probably realized, it’s still something of a crap shoot. The only thing I can do is keep stubbornly at it so when the marks do land right, I can make the most of it!
