get with the medium

Iíve got to get into bulk. Bulk in the backgrounds. Drips and splats are all very well, but I want to get some bulk on the panels. Large amounts of thick paint, shrivelled and tortured textures, smooth and solid textures. History.

Iíve got bulk on the panels before, and highly successful it has been. But itís hard to do. Itís easy to do, so itís hard to justify. Painting a figure is hard, and as a result itís easy to justify. So because itís hard, itís easy to spend my time doing it. Hard Work, good old hard work, the struggle Ė got to be worthwhile. Getting bulky media together is, dare I say it, quite fun. Mud pies and playing with sticky is and always has been enjoyable. So to spend my time mixing up a mess of oil and paint is hard.
