Make it Count

Last night as I worked on a pastel piece and an oil painting, I reminded myself to make each brush stroke count. During my painting process, I continue to ask myself: “What drew me into this composition, what is my focus, and where are the key highlights that will make this piece pop?” My goal is to breakdown each area of a piece into blocks of simple values and shapes. Painting with purpose creates sharp, expressive work.
