Working with a master, George James

George critiques one of my paintings under the mirror so students can listen and learn.

My oft-painted market women were integrated into the overall design in the style of George James. It was really fun to try to subordinate them as just more pieces in the compositional puzzle.

Using a car squeegie to pull shapes into the wet paint on the plastic surface created large, flat, textured areas that held the composition in place visually.
