Anatomy of a Painting

posted in: Musings | 1

Here is a look inside my studio at a painting in progress, and the finished product.  It is called Landing Gear, watercolor and gouache on gold shikishi board, 20″h a 24″w.  The initial pouring and blending of color happens all at once.  Removing the color from the background and the adding of detail color can be done more slowly, step by step, after the initial pour is dry.
