I've finally gotten the time to do some new work. The past few months have been filled with producing the Corel Painter Essentials 4 video tutorials. During this time, I somehow managed to shoehorn in co-teaching a couple of workshops with Darrell Chitty. We did some live model sessions that dressed in Civil War-era costumes.
I used a shot from this series to work on further distancing my work from its photographic source. As more photographers are jumping on the expressive photographic interpretation bandwagon, I feel that it will be essential to employ aggressive techniques that erase the photographic underpinnings of the work. This is what I will be concentrating on as I continue to evolve my techniques.
