I found it interesting during the last painting class I taught how difficult it was for me to express how to load up a paint brush with a lot of pure paint and apply it thickly. It is one reason I like to introduce the palette knife as a painting method, as it's a little easier to understand that "painterly" concept using something with less accuracy.
For my latest POE (Painters of Etsy) treasury, I focused on those artists who like to load up the paint and create interest with layers and texture. It was difficult for me to choose these paintings - I couldn't find a lot of artists using these techniques. I also tried to look at the overall quality of the artist's Etsy shop to see if there is consistency to their work as well as a nice "look" to their shop (images that weren't all blurry or with flash marks from their camera; a decent banner; a focus on original art). This too, was difficult. It made me realize how many people of varying skill levels are selling paintings on Etsy. Also, how many different styles are available on Etsy. It made me appreciate the art galleries that sell high quality art, and how many portfolios they must reject, and how they might quantify the art they choose.
Not to worry if I DIDN'T choose your Etsy shop, however, I may have just missed it! (Or, already featured you a few times and tried to get some new people showcased).
I hope you enjoy my "painterly" painter choices!
