I don’t know if you’ve realized that I am really lazy… (Mostly because I don’t have much time to spare.)
Anyway, my laziness is drawing me to explore a rougher and quicker technique of painting. I’m fascinated by artists who can paint rough, yet beautiful, paintings with a very limited amount of brush strokes.
The attached image by Gregory Manchess is good example of what I’m talking about.
A few questions:
1. Is this a style (or just sketches)? If yes, what is the style called? (Painterly, minimalistic, stroke economy?)
2. Did any of the old masters practice this style or are there any contemporary artists that are successful with this style? (I’m looking for a role model)
3. Do you have any idea of how to learn this?
