I usually begin by pouring 3 to 4 colors allowing them to mingle resulting in additional colors. I check out the results as I have begun without a subject in mind. I allow the paint to guide me and use my imagination to choose a theme and mood. My paintings are rarely planned but seem to end up representing nature. If There are no images, I pour more paint. I don’t worry about the outcome I just continue painting doing whatever works to see what evolves. Eventually it becomes a puzzle to pull together. I’ll use watercolor, acrylic, collage, charcoal, pastel and positive/negative painting to make it work! The results are intuitive abstraction with some subject matter, lots of layers, shapes, texture, color, patterns and line.
