A large w/c study from last week. The sessions require energy and focus, and the results vary from disasters to an occasional vision. The 2 minute studies are often the most interesting, where the quick color shapes make a balance with a palpable figure. I’d like to keep the impulsive quality all the way through the longer studies, 10 min. – 30 min, but they often bog down into rendering. The balance between close observation and impulsive mark making is a rather thin wire.
A fruitful direction may be to shift attention to the whole visual field, and allow the whole to be made of fragments.
