Iusually start with my inspiration. With this project it was a picture of painted pottery that I found online. I selected my canvases and then went about choosing the base pigments to mix into my desired colors. I then began to ‘wash’ the panels with my base colors and then ‘cut in’ with the bolder colors of accent.
This process I accomplished all while sitting on the floor. I’ve never been a real ‘tabletop’ artist. Nor do I like to stand for long periods of time. With most if not all of my abstract work, I am either sitting cross-legged or kneeling on the floor and putting my full essence into the work. It is only when I begin to add the depth work and texturing do I transfer the canvas to a tabletop easel and have a seat.
I adore how this project turned out and have just the right place in mind for them! I am really inspired to try more Triptych style paintings and most definitely on a larger scale.
Here's to doing what you love for the sake of it! SL
