I am beginning to paint the way I draw. You will see the progression of approach in today's posting of "Woman with Flowers." I chose this relatively simple theme and composition to enable me to work on approach and technique. I have developed an approach in drawing which facilitates my solving problems other than the manner in which marks are placed on the page. At last this is beginning to happen in painting as well.
The one drawing I made yesterday illustrates my continueing struggle with handling the entire ball of wax simultaneously. Form, composition, surface texture, demonstration of emotions, et cetera and et cetera: ALL have to be done together. I am moving in the right direction, progress is being made, slow but sure wins the race.
