We Did

Moving forward with the "Painting That Is Not Painting But Drawing In Another Guise" but looks very much like painting to me, and very enjoyable too since I have dumped all my previous pretentions and focussed solely on creating simplified figurative images.

These two youngsters are here tying the knot, some might ungraciously say, just in time:

"We Did", acrylics on paper, 59x43cm.

At this time my intentions are to produce a very sketchy and fluid image without painting the whole picture to death. This means that some areas of the painting naturally will remain unpainted. The lines and the shapes are intentionally "unfinished" to emphasise their transient nature - always moving and as expressive as I can make them. 

In the long run this will undoubtably change, as does everything, and perhaps in time will become more refined but, hey, who knows what lies ahead?
