Evolution of a painting

       This is a 30″X40″ painting on which I am currently working. So far it is all acrylic, with just a little bit of colored pencil.

                                        

        and I think it is done.

See a larger image of the completed piece on Paintings page EVENING SHADOWS.

    Love this painting. I am surprised that you paint the foreground first and the background after. Seems like it would be the opposite. I am interested in your comments on this. Thanks.

      Two reasons, I think. 1. Since I don’t sketch out a composition or plan much ahead, the foreground seems the most important, so that’s where I like to start, and then I fill in the background to go with it. I do, in reality, add to and subtract from the foreground as I go as well. 2. I love negative painting (painting around a shape to establish it rather than painting in a shape)
      Hopefully, that makes some sense to you.
