My paintings reflect the overall essence of landscapes that I either see or imagine. By keeping the composition simple I can focus on balancing colors, values, and texture. The beauty and emotion are in the simplicity.
In my technique, I only work with one color at a time. I do not squeeze out multiple paints onto my palette. I mix and work with the one color I need, clean my palette, and mix a new color. This keeps my paints fresh. My finished piece needs to feel balanced to me. Balanced in the colors I’ve used; a balance in the dark, light, and medium values; and a balance in the quiet areas versus the more detailed, noisy areas.
