Process Part 2

Going forward and building layers I discover what's working. I like some of the shapes emerging from the negative spaces as well as the multicolor circular bands. I've also decided to keep five of the ten paintings purely in shades of blue so I may end up with five diptychs instead of ten separate paintings or the paintings will alternate between just blues and the more colorful ones when finally hanging in a space. I'm still working out the unity or composition within each painting as well as levels of loose versus sharp line quality. In the past I've worked with fine line drawings and somewhat tighter or tidier shapes so I'm branching out to explore expressive painting with these new works.
