I see the finished work in my mind’s eye before I actually begin, the image appears in flashes, gestating from a thought to a realization to a work in progress. It is the process that entices me, the challenge of thought, material, technique, climbing into the image, and thrashing around a bit until I begin to create. I paint in layers, starting with an allover wash, depicting light and shade and the beginnings of depth. I continue with 2-3 dead layers, all in grays, paynes grey, black, white and torrit grey. Then the color layers, muted at first, as the layers are added the color intensifies and finishing with highlight layer.
