Mr. David Cushman
Oil on canvas
20" x 20"

This is a painting of my math teacher David Cushman. This painting was done alla prima in two hours. It is an example how I like to balance my understanding of formal elements with a gestural painterly technique. My approach was one of observation and impression. Describing the planes of the human head as they exist in space provides a chance to not only test what you see but what you can remember.
