I’m trying to loosen up a bit



Yellow barrel


As my focus is shifting back to painting for a while, I thought I would share the most recent of my paintings which is another departure from my usual style.

My paintings are predominantly photo-realistic but, in recent years, I have been trying to produce work that is less controlled.  This is quite difficult for me, I think because of my perfectionist nature.  So to try and loosen things up a bit I thought I would paint this one entirely with a palette knife instead of a brush.  (except for the background, of course).

I am reasonably happy with the result but I think I still have a long way to go to achieve my goal.
