Studio happenings

Welcome to my studio this morning! Here are a few new pieces. This one (40 inches square) I just completed and I'm happy with what happened. I wasn't able to apply the final blue wash evenly (if you go over any one area too many times, the white lines get covered), but this ended up creating depth and a sense of a downward vertical rushing movement.




Here's a smaller piece (20 inches square) that didn't turn out as expected, but I like what happened:




By accident, I discovered this dry brush technique (the light areas), so I think I'll try it again on a larger painting.




And here's a little shot of my studio floor! Don't wear your new Manolo Blahniks in here.

My new Manolo Blahniks, ha ha ha. I'll try very hard indeed not to drip paint on them.

But feel free to wear your bedroom slippers. I always do! ;-)
