This piece is several years old, but I think it really shows
how I like to paint. I sometimes veer away from this drippy
negative painting style...but hopefully to always return to it.
This painting was started with random really loose and washy
"splotches" of yellow, just running a large brush over the paper
in several different places. While it was drying I dropped some
other pigment in a couple areas, like greens and blues..then had
to be patient for everything to dry completely. I sketched out my
design on that and developed the painting in gradual stages of
progressive washes, "carving" out the petals, stalks and leaves.
