mystery is the key
Put in your paintings only what is essential...allow the viewer to become involved. Mystery. This is my painting. Below are Richard's beautiful painting and underpainting.
When I attend Richard's workshop each year I now realize there is a pattern. I take in so much information that the second and third day's paintings are awful . I am wrestling with the concepts he has (re) presented to me. By the fourth day, the day the participants get to go off on their own to consolidate their information and paint, it starts to come back together. Today is that day. The paintings above were yesterdays. I will post one of today's paintings tomorrow. I am now starting to feel better. ....like I get something big. Wait till tomorrow...I will write then!!!!!
