Ernie Baretto's work intrigues me because of his use of color palate. He works large which is what I am going to do this semester. I like his free and lose strokes very playful yet with such feeling. He works similarly to me in that he doesn't always plan out the piece yet lets it happen and emerges himself in the work. He intuitively knows when the paintings are done. I enjoy working this way although I have strived to plan my subject matter more in my own work. I have also worked on simplifying my color palette.
