A City Comes Together in the Studio

I’m really liking to take photos of the various stages that a painting goes through because I’ll often just plow through to the end and not appreciate what went on in between the start and finish.  I love love love loose and gestural work which is why I’ll sometimes be 20 minutes into a painting and have the feeling of– “do I really have to finish this?  I’ll loose those strokes!  Where will that awesome base color go?”  Eventually with practice I’ll achieve the ultimate goal of keeping that loose and spontaneous feel while still holding together a sense of completion.  For now, this is the stage I’m at.  I’ll let the piece rest and see how I feel in a week.
