Like What You Like

Just to add a little variation to my process, sometimes I’ll begin a painting by putting down a bunch of different marks, nearly filling the canvas.

Then, I’ll start covering or changing what I don’t like, until only what I do remains. It’s almost like working backwards.

Click the image to see what this looks like in practice, and let me know what you think…do you ever use this method?

In gratitude, Nicholas
