Mountain Wildlife

We learn by our mistakes.  What is a mistake anyway?  All it means is that the painting isn’t doing what we wish it to do.  Now, painting in the unknown is an entirely different thing – an in the moment experience.

Some of the paintings that I have done, that people love, have something underneath them that I didn’t wish to keep there, so I painted over – the extra layers create a rich texture and add depth.  In the process, I will have learnt something about how the paints move, what they will and will not do.  This is what happened with the painting above.
