A Few Detail Views of The Flow of Creativity Painting

The Flow of Creativity

Here are a few more detailed shots of my latest painting The Flow of Creativity. There is a lot of texture that I had enjoyed developing, in the water that creates her gown. I am finding an affinity for more use of texture in my paintings these days. It adds another element of interest, but can also be a struggle to work with because of the shadows created by the textural effect.

The Geisha's face was purposefully stylized and developed along with the fish. I wanted an element of otherworldliness, as opposed to the realistic view I had originally envisioned when I started. It's always interesting to let the painting lead me where it wants to go. It takes on its own persona after awhile.
