Outburst - painting Study by cogwurx Outburst - painting Study by cogwurx

12” x 12”
Oil on Canvas

by cogwurx

I wanted to go back to a color palette that I haven’t used in a very long time. I missed working with these earth tones and crimson. This is more or less a study for a much larger painting…well, it was. I’m not sure I’m going to go larger on this. I need the image to percolate a bit before I decide to remake this into a larger painting.

I love it and can't wait for the painting it inspires!  How did you feel when you painted it?  Did it inspire you?

Thanks! It was a really quick painting and did it in about 4 days or so. It felt great to just let the painting take over and work with the textures as a result. I've been really playing around with impasto and limiting my brushwork. I just dig the textures and layers that I'm getting.

That's awesome. So when you were letting the paint take over was there a thought process? For me my thought is a little meditative and just focus on the paint and what it is doing. Do you pick up any cool personal tricks this way?

My thoughts usually go blank, until I sit back and stare at the painting after I have applied a bunch of paint. It could be considered meditative, but I like to look at is a silent dialog...a conversation if you will.

I like it. :)   so you paint and then you meditate on it?

Some may call it that, I just call it part of the dialog. Sometimes I walk away, other times I just sit and smile, whereas on some occasions I stare back at it with contempt and loathing as I wrestle with it.

This particular piece had none of that. It was more of a determined rush, almost like a speed painting...I had a vision in my head of what I wanted to paint and in the process of painting it came so naturally and freely that I finished this piece in less than a week. No time to sit with it as I was afraid of "losing the vision". Normally, my work takes a few weeks.

Yeah I have different reactions to my paintings....sometime s I'll walk past some that aren't done and make and roll my eyes at how hideous they are. Not sure if it's actually hideous or I just not where I want it to be. I never actually thought of that as part of the process but I like that you share that about your artwork. Very cool about the vision and just laying it down like that. You definitely had a vision.

The earthy tones really lend well to the crunchy texture; it's sublime.
