Every so often I return to look at Pablo Picasso's work. He and I share a manner of attack, and a love of the figure. Now I realize we also relish the expression created by composition. During the past year I have put this aspect of my art on the back burner. It is returning with a vengence. At the end of today's post I show the initial sketch on canvas of the new painting, "Pulling Onions." Today I will return to this painting with an approach of simultaneously solving composition, form, light, and color. This has been a long time coming. Please watch it unfold in front of your eyes during the next few days. Before viewing the sketch on the new painting, compare my drawing to the Picasso drawing posted below my drawing. Can you see the similarity of approach?
