Eddie's Cafe

Acrylic on Panel – 12 x 9 inches sold

In trying to work larger, I'm struggling to resist using the small brushes. I find I'm being stingy with the paint, especially in the puddle I mix up. Just not used to it yet is all. And I'm having a hard time keeping things loose without trying to put every tiny object in place. For this one, I actually went back a few days later and put some looser strokes in place to give it some energy and have it not look too much like an illustration.

I might try this again with a different crop. It's hard to tell what the intended focus is here anyway.

And don't miss the banner (upper right) mentioning the upcoming show at Apollo.
