Ragged Edge Values
"If everything seems tight and under control, then you're not going fast enough"......Mario Andretti.
I like to paint quickly, fast and loose, often using a palette knife rather than a brush. When I do use a brush its invariably a flat one, enabling large areas to be covered in a stroke, and limiting the application of detail.This is where my idea of ragged edge came from, producing something a bit raw; full of energy and vitality.
I tend to select subjects that are off the mainstream, with the aim of creating a piece of art that captures teh energy of the moment.
