My favorite moment when starting a new painting is after I’ve put some undercoats on the canvas and have roughly sketched out what I want to paint. I love to look at a painting like this and sometimes find it hard to move on to the next step. At that moment, there are so many possibilities before the work begins. Here is a large painting at that perfect point. (kinda hard to see the sketches though, sorry) Tomorrow I’ll starting messing it up so I can work it back to a point I like again!
