more purple rock & prep for new paintings / by Philip Tarlow

studio view at the end of my painting day, with purple rock on the right & 3 painted over motion paintings

8pm: at the very end of the day, somewhat frustrated by todays slow paced work on purple rock, i began painting over 4 earlier motion paintings i wasn't entirely happy with. BELOW are 2 of them: right-logs in motion and left- zigzag. i may strat work on one or both tomorrow morning.


3:25 PM: delicate painting it is. delicate work it requires. but don't be skittish; sometimes bold strokes are what's needed. how do you know ? gut.
