Occasionally I like to take pictures of my work as it evolves on the easel. I don't always know where I'm going when I start, but I usually know when I get there.
Here is the canvas with a few guide lines establishing the structure, composition of the painting and some preliminary color. At this point, I'm not too worried about the colors I'm using.
A little more paint and the composition begins to emerge.
I decided to add bolder color...some hot pink and yellow orange.
At this point I was begining to think that I was almost finished but this is where I needed a second opinion. I asked my critic, my husband, what he thought. He confirmed my feeling that it needed something more.
