allowing the painting to dictate

Same infatuation, taken to the studio. I have been playing with all kinds of different stains and underpantings.  I enjoy how much the stain or underpainting, in its spontaneity influences the painting. Remembering not to cover it and holding back the marks are key. Each mark must have reason. Constantly I really need that color/mark?
This is on sanded museum board stained with coffee.

The coffee color looks great showing through all the other colors! What's next? Tea stain?

Yes Donna, you knew it. I already tried tea as well!
