Bertie again

One of my most favourite artists is Terry Miura. (Check out his blog: full of useful information He describes this technique of "lost and found": when painting try to change reality into abstraction, but to the point where it loses its meaning. Then go beck one step.
It sounds easy, but it isn't. Where do you loosen the edges, how does colour behave, what is the relation between background and subject. I never expected it was so hard to do.
I introduced the technique in our Master class, and here is the first result of yesterday morning live model session. More to come.
