In my latest phase, I have been obsessed with the fluid sense of water and how to reverse or re-invent my old techniques. By taking the brightest highlights of the image and turning them into the main focus, I could take the negative space or the darks in the image and use the fluid motion that I have been so focused on creating. During the creation of "Essence" I had discovered a way to make oil look as if it is just a fluid. Like it was placed and froze in time whilst in the fluid phase. Ever since I have been experimenting with this technique and how to further liquify the look of my Oil paintings. With this painting I was taking a different direction then the rest. Instead of focusing on the sole effect of the Black Oil paint and its fluidity, I added color and different color ink. The goal was to bring back some of my classic style but to add a new twist.
