Friday Night Gallery Chat, A Watercolor Painted With Skill And Panache

bops ‘Bops”

Good evening,  the above watercolor was painted by Leslie White, a Watercolorist ( the Link to see more work is below) who feels an affinity with Egon Schiele and his work.  If you look at the larger painting  you can see the ease with which Leslie is able to lay down his lines.  His use of color is unexpected yet the colors flow one into the other.

 

I have the smaller image below so you can see how a painting changes as it gets farther away from your eye,

bops

Looking at the neck and how well it is painted, you can feel the jowls and fur and only a minimal amount of paint was used.  There is  real heft to the shape of the head similar to a stone sculpture.

This painting shows why you should check out your local museum or gallery whenever you can!

 

Have a great weekend!

  2. He is a person of the male persuasion, I believe. Check out his website!
