"Yellow Chrysanthemums" --- Sold

Click Here to Purchase

This is my dream direction: I want to paint loose on my large paintings. This one is 12" x 12". If I don't tell you, don't you think it is as loose as one of my small 6" x 6" paintings. This painting is not perfect. It is an experiment, but it does have some of the effects I have been trying to obtain for a long time. To be honest with you. I did not feel confidence when I paint this one. I have to concentrate on the aesthetic designs while to place adequate amount of realistic information to make it representational. It is a balance between the abstract design and convincing realistically.

You have perfectly described the problem of how to paint contemporary impressionism when you said, "I have to concentrate on the aesthetic designs while to place adequate amount of realistic information to make it representational."

Thanks!

I love the brushwork, so nice and loose. The painting sparkles with light. Did you use the palette knife?

The brushwork and strokes are lovely and it gives a nice affect to the painting. It does resemble with the contemporary style and so close to nature.
