In my above painting, Basketball Jump, I wanted to convey the player in a rough and sketch like manner. The gesture of the basketball player as he reached for the hoop shows his agility. I used impasto brush strokes for the player and an abstract background. The figure is placed on the support’s Golden Mean. The player’s pose and the impasto strokes contribute to the rough, sketch like figure.
This is a digital painting using mainly traditional oil painting techniques and a painterly approach. I used virtual brushes and paints (Corel Painter 12 and Intuos5 drawing pen and tablet).
