Quickly Pressed On Paint

Below is something that I quickly painted with acrylics onto canvas yesterday.  The canvas had already been home to a few different paintings but each time I wasn’t particularly happy with the outcome and I quickly painted over them.  I think this one will survive, I like how textured the paint looks, helping to give it depth, and how rough the effects of the palate knife have made it look.  Regardless of how much I would love to paint the human figure, I always get a jolt of joy spreading the paint thickly across the canvas in no particular form or direction, to let the colour and shapes come though organically.  It is probably a life lesson for me to form some sort of coherent plan, but, much like my own life, it is a random process, completely at the mercy at the junction of the interactions of the biological and the physical.
