Looking and Abstracting from Masters

 

Last Judgment, Rubens  I fumble with the phrase "abstracting from" yet it seems the best way to describe my current studio practice. Reducing marks with paint and a brush. Keep it simple. I'm obsessed with this image, been sketching it for a week. The visual content is endless and I have no idea what will come out of it but, I continue.
