Wonderful Elliot! I love this! Very loose, free and playful. The 7-step method can consistently be relied on but venturing away from it is certainly OK too and a lot can be learned by doing so. The 7-step method is a great tool to help people get started painting. I love the colors here Elliot and the blue and pink near the bottom work beautifully and the green, wonderful! Brian
Thanks Brian! I do feel like it was a good exercise and I was pleased with the result, but I'm still a 7-Stepper!
Hi Elliot, seems real abstract to me with lovely shapes lights and darks. love the left green chair and the way light is falling on it..
Its nice!I wasn't sure what to expect after you had described it. Loose and abstract -- not everything all mapped out make for a nice painting. Really cool brushwork, colors and shapes in the bottom/forground. Steven
Great vibe Elliot.
Great feel to this painting Elliot!Love those loose brush strokes!
Fun and playful. You captured the subject matter 100% with fluid not boring detail. I really like it,Page
