“To be an artist means never to avert one’s eyes.” – Akira Kurosawa

Another painting of white fabric. I know, how edgy and daring can I get? I had meant to do a close up of my subject matter from the last two images, but I couldn’t find my original photo, so I started fresh. I chose an image with more contrast this time.  And I painted on panel instead of canvas. I prefer stretched canvas, but didn’t mind the hard texture of the panel on this one. I’m not thrilled with the visibility of the brush strokes of the gesso layer – next time I will definitely sand my panel smooth before I start. Overall, I’m not unhappy with this image. I like it better today than I did last night when I called it finished.
