Same Same but Different, a Cup of Blessings.

A lesson on colour strategy presented in Gregg Kreutz' book prompted me to create this deeply layered study after one of his paintings. There is a huge amount of work in this piece, having started it back in late 2010 just before I left for New York to study in Gregg's class and open my second solo show there. I later returned to the work to heighten and refine certain areas with the knowledge I gleaned from spending time in Gregg's class with him and his dedicated students.

After this tribute I'll post one more image of a tonal arrangement inspired by a charcoal drawing by Gregg and then it's back to my own recent work. I have several new still life paintings I want to share with you.
