Painting Out Loud

February 12, 2017

11 x 14    This colorful snow scene was painted from a small news clipping depicting the labor and the beauty of winter. The finished work demonstrates what I describe as my method of "painting out loud".  Just like "thinking out loud" I tend to put dabs of color down, contemplate how it looks, how it reads next to the existing colors. Should it be a "warm" red or a "cool" blue?  Or a "cool" pink--or "warm" lavender?  Yes all those variations are in there--some dabs get painted over, others left behind. The process can be tedious and unsettling, but  when it starts to "sing" and there is harmony--I am pleased.
