I enjoy the process of painting in water media.
I have my concept planned, a title even, so I know when to stop painting.
My choice of composition is made early as is the color combination.
Then all I have to do is fulfill the painting.
This sounds easy. It can be off-putting. Nevertheless, I know two reasons I am eager to engage the project, first the delight in discovery. How will the painting turn out?
Second, I have lots of gesso. It’s what I started with the first time.
