When I first saw Michael Carson‘s paintings, I was reminded of Degas and his behind the scenes paintings of ballerinas. Michael Carson gives us an ethereal glimpse inside the world of women. He paints them either slouched in a chair with paint drips or in groups unposed and exposed, allowing the viewer a glimpse at a moment in their lives.

” The brushwork, the edges and color combinations allow me to maintain my sense of design. I also paint wet, which allows the paint to move easily throughout the canvas. I always try to make the work look effortless or simple. I like to be able to see the actual brush stoke up close and get that sense of knowing exactly how I painted it.”

“I paint people because I have always had a serious addiction to watching people. I try to get that feel in my paintings. As if I am just watching people doing everyday things in my work. I love the subtle ways that a single brush stroke can create such subtleties in facial expression. I spend most of my time on the face and hands. They tell the story or create an interesting pose.” (via rjdgallery)
