I have been painting prolifically over the past few weeks, expanding my Sports Collection with a focus on my Equine and Horse Racing series.
I typically paint spontaneously, without a specific style or technique in mind. However, I have recently been drawn to the brilliant colors and loose brushstrokes of Impressionist paintings.
The lack of detail in a painting can make it more interesting by focusing the viewer's attention on the overall aesthetic essence of the scene, its shading, movement, and the flow of color. This can emphasize and accentuate the changing of lights.
I find that I am often drawn to Impressionist paintings, which often have a loose, painterly style with visible brushstrokes. This style can help to capture the fleeting moments of light and atmosphere in a way that more realistic paintings cannot.
Creating art is a continuous journey for me, and I am always learning and evolving. I hope you enjoy my creations, and I look forward to sharing more of my work with you in the future.
