Splishin and a Splashin
About this artwork
Inspired by a photo of an Australian Shepherd, artist Jeff Fleming added a beachball and splashing water to energize the composition. Jeff describes his painting style as kinetic impressionism. I started with a pencil sketch, then with gloved hands, applied oil paint using my fingers, shares Jeff. Later, I added details using brushes and string. Once dried, I moved the piece to my studio floor where I whisked paint in authoritative strokes - a technique that replicates splashing.
