'myra anderson - in search of figurative expressionism' by myra anderson . . .


Day One:  What is figurative expressionism?  Why right now I have only a small idea.   I will of course 'Google' figurative expressionism.  I will examine the paintings of figurative expressionists.  And,  I will watch videos about figurative expressionism - and maybe - just maybe - I'll catch a clue.   Day Two: In the painting above . . .
I did what some figurative expressionists do.  I started this painting with a series of paint gobs (no drawing) such as these.  I massed in the figure and then painted the details.  I'll show you some paintings and videos by some figurative expressionists.  We will see if I will 'get it'.  Let the games begin.

It's beautiful. Is that acrylic? Doesn't it dry too fast or do you paint really really fast?

Myra, thanks for your visit to mine. This also is fabulous - and if I didn't think it I would not say it - I am not just being polite! Look forward to next stages. Can you give us some URLs to follow up of figurative expressionists?
