I paint using a handful of favorite, well-honed techniques, namely hatching, blending, scumbling, and glazing. On the whole, however, it’s laying down the many small brush strokes (hatching) that consumes most of my painting time.
When you look at my paintings from any reasonable distance (or as web images), the eye naturally blends all those tiny strokes together. This gives you the experience of viewing smoothly modulated colors and forms. When you stick your nose right up close to a full size painting, though, the tracery of brush stokes becomes apparent.
Below I’ve enlarged portions of several paintings so you can see the brushwork.
