Fracturing the Vessels

Fracturing the Vessels

8x6in oil on canvas   100.

Try to keep an open mind here...if you like realism done smoothly
then I understand that this is a bit of a jolt. I did a different technique
from the same still life as yesterday's painting...minus the feather!

This one was much harder for me to do as I have not got the
technique down yet. I do think that is why I am fascinated exploring
how far I can fracture the pieces to where they still look like how
they are, but in a definitely different manner.
I played with more color in the background too. Fun!

Here is yesterday's painting so you can compare the differences.

Earlier this month I did the freesias the same way and liked those a great deal.
Flowers are easier for sure.

  1. I think it's pretty darn cool! I was attracted to the freesia painting, so I'm happy to see more experimentation with this.

  2. Love what you are doing with fracturing--a direction I am also interested in experimenting with--

  3. This is pretty cool! I'll have to give it a try.
