After intensifying the red background and leaves with additional washes or glazes, I loaded my 1/2" sable flat with gold, orange, red and blue paint then splattered each one randomly. Tony Couch once told me if you are going to splatter, then do so over the entire composition and not in one isolated area. Not done yet, but close. Now I'm contemplating partial outlining in black India ink. As this is an imaginary image I'm taking it slower than usual. Stay tuned for the final episode. It is at this stage that I select my next painting and began creative wheel turning, LOL!
