Semblance of Autumn was one of my most ambitious pieces. I spent a lot of time on this one, almost a mad obsession.
I started with a somewhat calculated splattering of blue, and then the red, and finally the yellow. Working primary colors into each other while wet produces the various hues of green, orange and purple, as well as various hues of blue, red and yellow. This gives the painting a lot of depth and intricacy.
I work the canvas paying close attention to what is going on in front of me. And I try to not be too heavy handed.
This interaction is the core of my process. It is a conversation, of sorts. A back and forth rapport continue through the entire process until I achieve the desired results, which is a lot of times is not exactly the results I was looking for. But the universe has a way of lending a hand, so to speak.
