The process of painting is what I like. It’s what I enjoy doing - the technical machinations of the job - deciding what to paint - the composing/structuring of the painting - the drawing with paint - the mixing of paint and the dance of color on the canvas/panel - the surface texture growing into its final form.
I usually start a painting from life/plein air or a photograph I’ve taken. Then I recompose it and add or subtract elements. At this point I quickly paint a fairly well rendered image covering the entire surface with paint - usually a thin coat.
Often this is when I set the painting aside (but within view). I regularly have more than a dozen paintings I’m actively working on, all at different stages of development, in my studio.
