Brian MurphyLight and Shadow Alchemy
These impressionist paintings are both a conscientious and continuous attempt at evolving my creativity. I really wanted to imbue a mood in each piece. I wanted to stay loose with the marks I made. Laying each brush stroke with purpose but less control, giving the paint itself a more prevalent role in the painting.
Adding a few more colors to my pallet for these paintings allowed me to explore color relationships further, with either more intensity or subtlety, depending on what was needed with each piece.
