During this painting session, I devoted my time to the purple in the background.
This painting is winding down almost to completion. It is in the stage of spending more time contemplating the next move than painting. This is the stage where I do not want to overdo it lest I ruin it or create dissonance.
If I do either of those two options, I will spend my time working to bring it back to life. Occasionally, it creates a better painting. Sometimes, it really creates a lot of stress and agonizing.
I prefer not to go over the edge, but sometimes I do, like I did with my Sir Kitty at Home painting. I spent a lot of time bringing it back from the dead. I wish I had not taken it that far.
I prefer to leave some unfinished pieces to the painting, like rough edges or such. I believe this helps add breath and life to the painting. Otherwise, I could push it to its demise and create a dead image. Perfection can go either way… either give it strength or seal its coffin.
The original image came from an image I created on my android phone in an app called PaintJoy.
How do you like it so far? Are there any places on this painting that you love?
