A painting in progress….

This is an attempt to describe a paintings progress or process – it isn’t the same every time …maybe this time was different because I am trying to shift things and I find that hard – above is the beginning of a painting and the end of it (for the time being) in as much as I stopped working on it…I moved on to making a painting from a painting -I wanted to make this next one less formal, overworked , dark, and stuck – I was struggling to resolve the above painting but there were aspects I wanted to make again so I changed the surface from gessoed board to gessoed paper and started again tightened the colour and tried to make my painting movements freer – although I sort of like the colours some of the elements are cartoon like and overworked again¬†– for me, it hasn’t got a soul…more about the patterns and colours – so now I have to combine the 2…… but how – I’m not sure but I decide to make a watercolour from the painting –
