Abstracted Apple Slice
Experimenting with a filbert to make obvious downward brushstrokes. It's maybe too contrived, or perhaps I just need more practice. I start most paintings with the intention of painting loosely in a more contemporary manner, but I seem to get lost in detail somewhere along the line. Decisions need to be made as to how loose I really want to be, because surely I would just do it if that is the real intention? Or maybe I just paint and not think. If it is meant to be loose, then it will happen on it's own.
