Day 13/30… or, And Now For Something Completely Different!

So…

I started this painting of a gravel road southwest of town, and I was going to do it in my usual way. Try and stay loose and free and let it flow out. Well… I did let it flow and stayed loose but I also let my head go for a walk and just painted. Colours where I normally wouldn’t use them, shapes that were more emotional than representational. More feel and less think resulted in something that looks pretty tight which is not what I expected. I peeled the tape off after giving it a couple of hours and smiled – not necessarily because I thought it was great, but because it was different.

    Nice work Grant…I like the way this one turned out. This style reminds me of the Group of Seven, or perhaps Don Tiller. Anyway, you’re right up there with the masters!!! 🙂 ~ Dave

    I really like it. Of course I like twisty swoopy lines. It changes landscape from being what is expected.
