While researching Michael Carson, I found some new favorite artists, one of which is Milt Kobayashi. I really like his choppy style. Enough detail to recognize the subject, but still a lot is left up to the eye to figure out. Power of suggestion!!
Anyway, I want to paint more loose like him, so I did a copy of one of my favorite paintings by him. It does look considerably different when looked at right next to each other, but I learned a lot.
The original painting is 8″x8″ and mine is 20″x16″
