This week's work

This week I wanted to concentrate on being aware of how the paint is applied. I experimented with dripping, using washes, and texture with different brushes. I plan to work on some more monotypes while this work is drying over the next couple of days.
I am finishing the Critical Theory paper relating my painting to contemporary abstract expressionism and am looking at the work of Phillip Taaffe. It is gesture more than pattern that I find interesting, but will continue to research use of repetition. Taaffe uses very simple combinations of shapes and colors to get powerful visual effects.
