As I am losing interest in reality persay, I did this large studio piece today. It's from the early studies of the river a few weeks back. I'm paying attention to application in preparation for the egads paintings.(every goliath attempt does surprise) I say losing interest in reality. What I really mean is I'm trying to abandon any attempt at drawing and I simply want to create a believable feeling or sensation. Of course, to do this I need to pay every attention to every detail and yet paint almost no detail! I guess it's really about what makes the artist drawn to a scene and conveying it. WITHOUT ILLUSTRATING IT!
