Contemporary Oil Painting

I’ve been blending oil paints onto this canvas for the past week now and I’m finally starting to like the direction it’s going in. I’m trying to keep it light as I’m well aware that all my paintings have a tendency to be on the dark side… I just can’t seem to help myself. But this one has a lot of white layered up. I’ve ditched my brushes completely now (about a year ago) and prefer to just paint using my fingers, I feel like I have better control that way.

It’s also been a sweet release to paint purely abstract and just lay down some marks however they come, a practice I’m going to be working more on this week on some smaller boards, I’ll share them with you as I do them.
