From start to finish




START - paint in the basic color masses or shapes. Paint it quickly and without a great deal of sophistication. Use as big a brush as possible. You have now laid down the foundation upon which you refine your shapes, colors, values, and edges.
FINISH - This is really the hard part! - the refining that is built upon your start foundation. Be patient and work hard!
Acrylic on stretched canvas- 8 inches by 10 inches.
