Ahora (Sort of)

First contact.

What follows are a sequence documenting the first painting in preparation for the show in September.

(Blogpost in Progress)

I have been streaming paintings in roughly two types: one that starts allover in a screed of wet paint and another which daubs in touches, a more open approach. With this paintng, I wanted to synthesise the two.

A image in process here.

The trick is that the former tends to obliterate the latter approach and the latter's tendency is to require a virgin canvas... the key is to find a way to preserve the foundation of the canvas along the way.

Here is a shot of the first location, a bookend to this post.
