Figurative Expressionism and the lost past

Love this video, reminds me of the earlier work I used to do before I stopped painting…

I did this piece in 1985.
After this period I stopped painting till 2004

Maybe I should start again.


A seven minute look at how Mel McCuddin creates his unique paintings with a series of oil painting techniques where Mel “finds the image” within the abstract expressionist “under painting” that he makes first. This process creates a spontaneity that leads to some very interesting results.
