Figure Study – Simplicity

Figure Study – Simplicity

Simplicity and the fewest brush strokes possible were the keys to this figure study.

I loved the idea of putting down a few strokes, only the ones needed to represent some mid-tones and shadows, in combination with a few sketchy lines. It was nerve-wracking for sure, but I let go and brushed the colour on the paper as quickly as possible so that I didn't have time to think. 

How exhilarating! I've always taken my time with my acrylic paintings. I was meticulous and sometimes paintings would take months to finish. No more! I'm done with that. I adore the adrenaline rush I get from completely letting go and putting down the fewest strokes possible in the shortest amount of time possible.

I think I will be doing this more often...so much fun!!

Hugs & Love!
