Step by Step Reflections Flow Technique

Aside

Step-by-Step Loose Trees - final - Joy TruscottThis is the painting that inspired two fun workshops and a dem for the Plett Art Society.  See how it began….

It starts out looking reckless and dangerous.

Just pour on the first colour. Then add the second and third colour.

When this was dry I had to sit with the painting for a long time to see what it wanted to be.

Step by Step Loose Trees 5 - Joy Truscott

The first washes or pours were in opaque colours so it was easy to lift out the shapes that were to be trees.

Step by Step Loose Trees 6 - Joy Truscott

Lots of techniques and play and slowly, step-by-step the painting becomes what it always wanted to be.

More colour in the foreground was needed so the yellows and reds were brought back to play.

Creating the foreground – still lots of colour – mainly the primary colours and allowing them to find one another on the paper.

Lots more fun techniques, lifting, sliding, washing, stippling, stencilling … too much fun.

I think this is enough … but you never know!
