Another way to create a painting

Painting by Design

This is another way to create a painting. I use an original sketch but begin to think about the patterns, which can be found in everyday objects or the landscape. I design the painting before I begin, paying particular attention to the form, tone and colour of the work. I always try to work ‘in the moment’ and I will abandon a particular path if another approach seems better at the time.
