The Usual Suspects 8x8" Acrylic Click to Buy
When I ask artists why they are taking my workshop, I always hear: I need to loosen up... I'm too slow, my work looks tired, etc etc. Usually they are suffering from tiny-brush-induced-detailitis. I tell them its easy to loosen up and proceed to force them to do so. In reality, its not about time, what they actually want is a more gestural, lyrical, painterly quality to their work. I preach big brushes, lots of paint, get your values correct. I love it when artists come in as disbelievers, and leave gushing with excitement to do their next 30 minute painting. Amen!
