9 Push extr emes
Whatever forces you unleash in your painting should be exaggerated in any way you can. In this painting of a hatching Triceratops, I keep redesigning the picture to bring the viewpoint closer to the baby emerging into the light. It is the dramatic emergence into the world of a new life finally escaping confinement. I push the contrast of light and shadow, lightening the light areas and deepening and grouping the darks in shadow.
