When starting to paint I have an idea of the landscape in my mind or a photo beside the blank board. Rough painted strokes outline the forms and lines. Blocks of solid colour come next and then reflection and contemplation while the under painting dries. Texture, form and detail come last. Then a check – What was my mission statement – have I fulfilled it. Is it the light…the mood…the shapes. What do I need to modify to make it clear? Each painting must have a mission statement and fulfil it grandly.
