Second Progression: DELVING INTO THE IMPRESSIONISTIC style
These two details show paintings finished last February.
Notice that the detail is even less prominent and there is more color and plays of contrast showing form based on light source and the various degrees of preventing that light from shining on the model.
This is still the generic representation. However, all the paintings done at this time are beginning to resemble each other more. Because of the way the brush strokes blended the color there is a fuzzy edge if you view the close ups like this. But if you stand about 8 to 10 feet back from the monitor you can see about what they would look like if you viewed them in person..
Keep in mind that because of the economics of my life I am not working large at this time but most of these studies are being done on gessoed watercolor paper about 9� by 11-1/2 inches
