Stages of a Painting

Here’s one of my first paintings of the new year. I’ve photographed it as I’ve been painting so I can show you the process so far.

I often start with a simpleย automatic drawing, which I use as a base to start my painting/collage. Then I choose a line or a shape to begin.I build from there, but don’t necessarily like what I see straight away, it just feels good.I often collage with paper that I’ve prepared previously.I always try and think of new ways to express myself or emphasise a part of the painting in a certain way and I try different ways of applying the paint as you can see in this section here.This is where I’ve got so far but things may well change! ๐Ÿ™‚ ย

These are to give an opportunity to escape the rat race of life and focus on the pleasures of intuitive painting. Here are some photos of the latest workshop to show what’s been done.ย  My next workshop is on Saturday 10th November 10 am – 12 noon.
