Some figure work

Last year I posted a video collage of some some figure work, but thought it would be nice to post full images.  You can view these at a higher resolution.  I’m working more so lately on the figure, and may have some new work to post soon. I’m incredibly inspired by the latest work by Dan MacCaw.  This blog post, which describes how he takes a landscape and sort of “deconstructs” it through a series of paintings into something else, is intriguing, and something I’m going to attempt myself this weekend.  I’ve struggled with loosening up my work, and trying to drive more and more towards abstraction.  His recent studies are a fascinating example of how to achieve that.
