Thom Yorke: For the Birds
I know this is very different from what I normally do, people always expect tight rendering and so forth. I enjoy that kind of work, but I also LOVE work that is loose, painterly, and sketchy. I enjoy moody palettes, and I love to paint, and love to sketch. So for an experiment of sorts I decided to have some fun and play around with my style a bit, mixing all that I love into one piece.
This doesn't mean that everything I do will have this look, however, I would like to develop and explore this path a bit to see where it may lead? I feel it's important to mix things up a bit, trying something new can be as good as therapy. I had a lot of fun messing around with this, but it wasn't easy ignoring the left side of my brain. You know, that critical voice who just won't leave you alone? It was hard to resist the temptation to render the snot out of everything. I decided to let go and let my artistic side take over . . . I'm not a spontaneous person so this was a challenge. I wasn't sure where I was going to end up or if the trip was even worth it? I'm glad I went along for the ride.
I was happy with the "feeling" I captured . . . I look forward to working on the next piece.
