Welcome to my free flow, kung foo style of painting. Where there is no up or down, no right or wrong. If you paint outside the line, it was meant to be outside the line. When I paint this way, I first select the colors for contrast and harmony. That.s about the extent of my planning. I just put the brush down and go. Creating the background and then the first lines of movement to give it structure. Only later putting the highlights and embellishments to make it pop.
This is the foundation to my painting style. When I first started painting, this is how I painted: In the moment, in the now. Only in recent years have I started to plan and layout projects prior to painting them. But as my first love, I always come back to the randomnessof this style.
