I’m continuing to paint wet-into-wet, letting the colors blend naturally within the smaller shapes. This style of painting can be very relaxing.
Here is another completed smaller shape using the same wet-into-wet process. There is very little brushwork. The paint is dropped-in.
While still damp, I begin to carefully lift to create definition and form.
Here is the finished effect after lifting.
When describing this week’s painting process, the two words that come to mind are: gentle attentiveness.
For me, gentle attentiveness more easily unfolds while working in solitude in my studio. Without distractions and interruptions, I am better able to connect to the painting.
Be alert to the senses.
Elevate the ordinary.
Art is about a heightened
State of awareness.
