continuing work on "motion 22" 38x36" / by Philip Tarlow

3:30 PM: i continued working into the motion 22 drawing i began yesterday. in the previous versions of the motion series, this would have been the under-drawing, which has now evolved into a painting on it's own. it has a very different, much lighter feel than it's predecessors. you get the feleing you're looking at a post-impressionist interior, rather than a creek-scape. 

i have used oil paint, but only in selected areas and there is no impasto; it's all very thin, diluted color, most of which has then been scraped with a palette knife, creating new, suggestive shapes.  

the danger with this kind of work is always over-doing it. i'll work for another hour or so then continue in the morning.
