Oil Sketch

Well, this is just a sketch on gessoed paper. It breaks all kinds of compositional rules, but no need to have me arrested, it was just dashed out for practice.

The light around the figure is good and the pavement appears to be sparkling!

When it comes to art, I feel the rules are meant to be broken. I think it is a fabulous dash off, my dear. Oh to be able to dash anything off!

Wonderful color balance! Everything works, in spite of middling lines and objects.

I just looked at some Wolf Kahn oils that break these rules, and how he works it all out is fascinating.

I love this , great energy...I am not sure what kind of rules are being broken here, but I wouldn't hesitate to break them again for this kind of result :-))

You should be making the rules.

We'll let ya go this time ma'am, but know we'll be watchin'. Especially in light of the fact this works a whole lot better than what I've spent a considerable amount of time working on. Remember, though-crime doesn't pay.

Oh I don't know. There are times when we reach a crossroad. Seems this runner is caught at one of those times. That's the message of this composition.
