Practicing Abstract Realism

I was inspired so much by a video tutorial by Sam Durkin https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cg-v8HIS-v4 , his persona and technique makes you willing to give it a TRY.  Check him out.  So much happening with this painting for me.  Just using primary colors is a first for me and I am really loving it.  You have way more control with your color palette.  Premixed can get muddy real quick.  The colors are more vibrant and true.  Next is working on depth, and lighting.  I think a bit more softening to go, but I'm really excited with this style of painting.
