I was inspired by Jason Waskey's blog so I decided to do this quick painting. His "everyday" small paintings have a looseness and quality that I really enjoy. I'm working to bring more of this looseness into my work while still achieving tight detail in some areas, similar to what Jason is doing. I like the visual excitement that the contrast of loose/sharp gives, it keeps the eye constantly moving about the image. I feel my drawings have a lot of this and I'm working to maintain that in my paintings. So I painted this painting to work on that visual contrast and tried to paint it as quickly as possible. I wanted it to be loose and detailed at the same time. The whole thing took about a couple of hours--I know, that's not that quick.
