(140) White Roses
8 x 10, oil
In today's painting, my focus was in pre-mixing the shadow and light colors, as suggested by my friend Frank Gardner. To see how he organizes his palette, click here. One of the reasons artists choose to pre-mix colors is because once the decisions have been made, the artist can switch from thinking to doing, from planning to spontaneously placing the paint on the canvas. Ken Auster calls this the dance between "intellect and passion."
"All true artists, whether they know it or not, create from a place of no-mind, from inner stillness"...Eckhart Tolle
