This painting was first painted in the traditional realism manner then scrubbed out while still wet and repainted in blocks of color. Stepping into breaking it down a third and forth time, until I have this result. Some of us see the slanted lines and automatically want to straighten them, that's just nature. The challenge was (for me) not to straighten out those strokes. My head is still saying wipe it out one more time and straighten those strokes. My hand says NO ! I won't NO ! Will I noodle this some more? Io non so. Thank you Ann Feldman for your workshop !
