In The Studio: Just Paint 22 “Long Time Gone”

This painting is about a lot of direction marks and a focusing the painting with a complementary color.  I think if you use, as I have been saying through the last project and this one, a really expressive brush you can make even the most mundane of subject matter come alive.  Now is the time to make getting right with a round brush part of your daily routine.  I know you all are on board with this and are working a little bit each day.  I would recommend that you forsake painting pictures and make sure your skills are up to par.  The painting should be a culmination of all the effort put into the process.  I promise that your paintings will be better when you paint intuitively and with purpose and direction.
