Perception by jialu Perception by jialu
Jia Lu 2011, oil on canvas, 30 x 24 inches

I had almost forgotten this small canvas. I am very pleased with the light, relaxed brushwork. This is a direction in which I hope to move with future work, creating a maximum effect from a minimum of effort. In fact looks can deceive - I find it is very slow and difficult to paint like this because I tend to over-think my brushstrokes, and must take time to relax. This painting is as much about touch and hearing as it is about light and color - all my senses must be engaged when I work, so excuse me while I go and brew some Kona coffee and turn on some classical music.

I'm new to DA and fairly new to painting, and I have only just now come upon your work. Your paintings are exceptional and inspiring; a real joy to behold.

Brilliant expressive piece. I love the movement of colour and the contrast between the intense warms and moderates.

Yes, this is much better, more free from style and form, more open for the viewers perception!
Beautiful painting!

This is such a beautiful piece for the reasons you mention. There's something strong in the delicacy of it. That lighting in traditional media is difficult to come by, but you've done an amazing job with it. I particularly love the bounces of green and blue in the skin tones - brings them to life so much.
