Here is another painting that was going in an unknown direction. I started with a bicycle and a couple of crows. I wrote in my last posting that I was going for a new approach to composition and a looser paint style. Add to that spontaneity. Everyone likes spontaneity, don't they..?
|PHASE ONE One bicycle and two crows. This was a good start, but after this things got a bit muddy and I put it aside for a few days.|
|PHASE THREE I got rid of the crows, added another bike, and I did something I never did before, I turned the painting on it's side. Things started to get interesting. Sometimes you need to change your perspective.|
|PHASE FIVE I scraped the whole thing off. The colors from the layers below surfaced, quite nicely.|
