A while ago I started a new style of painting. Got to admit, I am happy my long time art teachers cannot see it. Being trained on expression in art via composition, size and color, this new style don't meet (at all!) the education I acquired for more than 4 years. I can excuse myself by saying that this was more than half a century ago, but you should not buy it...
I wanted to give my boy a special painting and for no reason I can think about, I have done this painting.
I've started with the blue lines. I loved the movement of his hair. It gave it some energy, flow and a sense of composition. It took me a few weeks to finish. Since I started with the lines I had to work slowly and accurately between the lines. Stupid... I know... but I felt I needed the lines to guide me.
Since then I have made a few more paintings using the same method.
My last one is on canvas. I worked differently. I've started it with the background giving it somewhat an expressive mood.
More of these (and many more) can been seen on my Flickr.
