Keep­ing it loose

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

1 When I begin my paint­ing, I’m im­me­di­ately think­ing in the ab­stract. Mood and drama are the only im­por­tant fo­cus for me here. I use my imag­i­na­tion to find spe­cific colours to evoke a feel­ing. In this case, I want the feel­ing of hu­mid­ity, lush­ness and sub-sur­face scat­ter. I en­joy the feel­ing of dap­pled light cre­at­ing pat­terns on the ground from a tree canopy over­head. At this point I’m not con­cerned about spe­cific de­tails, only an emo­tional re­sponse.
