"Gestural- Fumee Falls" 9 x 12
oil on linen   (inquire about this work's availability)

One thing fun about gaining familiarity with a location with frequent paintings, studies, plein air...is that notion to entertain strategies or attacks that might prove intriguing to the eye.

Here...I wanted to play with drawing the eye to a specific focal area while dramatically underplaying the rendering and finishing of other areas. One area so lacking the chracteristic traits that identify realism, that by comparison this causes the finished areas to appear even all the more real.

I also wanted my brushwork more direct, thicker in some areas, bold...and a fun work!
