Things went gradual with attention to texture and attempting to use the abstract aspects to make a landscape. Still competing with inner self to loosen up – to get away from ‘tightness’ in painting – although, there was progress in this painting.
Step 4 – about 80% done.
Step 3: New layer and landscape takes shape.
Step 2 – Ross Inlet I – More layering to build an array of colors to build over.
Today, decided to do some larger work to become more involved with the painting. Larger helps to loosen up, use larger brushes and texture-making materials, and involve the whole physical self. This painting will be a landscape of Ross Inlet, just down the road from here. I’ll post as it progresses (or, degresses) – one never knows who is going to take control – artist or painting.
