blop,blop, blop


This is a tiny piece and done quickly before the teen bounced off to do whatever these kids do. My hope was to get the size and placement in that bit of light from a side window, as accurately as possible. I'd like to do more of these "blop" pieces and then see if I can successfully make them larger in my studio. I call them blop pieces because that's what I feel like I'm doing, just blop in the values in the right place the first time cause there's no second chance.

Thanks so much Jala. I think I'm going to try to make it bigger in the studio.

Wonderful color structure, great lights and darks. You captured so much in a short time! I love the concept of the 'blop'.

You captured the light and the feeling that this young lady was about to be "off" any second!! Beautifully "blopped"!!!

Thanks Garriott
Thanks Marian
I don't always have the confidence to just "blop" it down.

Great light and color! Great that you could get her impatient mood with just blopping.

Karen said...

Will you come over to my blog now and name my paintings for me? :)
I agree with the others...you totally did get at that one moment...before activity is resumed.

Hi Deborah, Thanks for your color compliment. It's especially encouraging coming from you with your rich and vibrant silk paintings.

Hey Karen,
Maybe our warped minds think alike if you like my titles. I had a teacher way back when who insisted we title our paintings before beginning. It was his way to help us keep to our initial concept. so what does it say about my "blop" concept???
