I've been advised that art buyers are attracted to the 'painterly' works of art and that perhaps I need to become more 'painterly in my approach.
Okay so here I am trying to get painterly. Without too much success at the moment I think. Are large gobs of paint on the canvas considered to be the best painterly approach? I tried that and didn't like what was happening so smeared those about. All right then .... how about direct applications of colour in quick swabs? I tend to mix colours on the canvas better than on the palette so the quick swabs weren't quite working either.
Anyway, another work in progress ... trying to get painterly!
Don’t know. What is painterly?
