I was told by an art critic that I noodle my paintings too much. My understanding of noodling is that you go in and paint too many little lines or bits of color. He said my work just isn't painterly enough with too many hard jumps from one color to the next. But this has go me thinking. What if instead of trying to move away from noodling to going towards it and noodling more, even over the top. So that is what I'm trying to do now. Here is my first example of this.
The next step is to do a larger painting using what I learned with this one. I also learned that striking contrast is far more visually exciting. It may not see like much to anyone else but for me this contrast made me very uncomfortable, which I'm learning is a great thing.
Well the next one is off and going. I'll get a shot of it in progress tomorrow. I also did some new pre-drawing things too.
