(Somewhat) Loose Moose

11x15 inches, acrylic and crayon - "Loose Moose"

The last few weeks I have been watching YouTube video demonstrations by artist Robert Joyner, a man I met at Dillmans a few years ago. Joyner has a friendly and low key personality, and a loose and energetic style of painting that appeals to me very much. He teaches classes, and has a series of "how to" videos that he recently began providing for free. Free - that is pretty much a dream come true for me.

At any rate, I decided to paint over a failed abstract, and attempt a looser style than usual, using larger than my usual brushes, not much concern for realistic color, more layers, some scribbled crayon work.  While I thought I was looser while working on this guy, once he was finished, I didn't think he looked especially loose.  Still.  I like him well enough.
