The biggest thing that has affected my work is his layering. Before, I did not find layering in artwork that important, but the more I have looked at his work, the more I have seen how layers make things look better. Perhaps the best thing that I like about his work is how he varies his textures. This adds to the painting and the layering. One thing that I find interesting is how he uses a series of non-organic and organic shapes to top off his works. The painting on the left is my favorite because of the texture on the lighter brown. On top of this textured brown, there is kind of a ghostly white blob that adds to the layer affect. I can tell that he has put a lot of time into his work because of all the small detail that went into each small object/shape he has painted.
