When I first started doing little videos about my works in process people asked if I could explain my process somewhat.
Unfortunately that's a really difficult question for me to answer. So much is based on decades of practice, muscle memory, experimentation, schooling, and countless hours looking at other artists work and reading about things like color theory and the properties of paint and a million other little things. But I'll try to explain a little of my thoughts on the subject anyway.
The first part of it is the relationship I have with the painting. I might come up with the initial idea of what the painting is going to be, but the rest of it is a sort of back and forth dialogue between me and the painting. With me doing a lot of 'listening' to what the painting needs.
The way this dialogue might unfold is this.
