canvas major

Only when he no longer knows what he is doing does the painter do good things.
Edgar Degas

Sometimes, I approach the canvas with a clear objective in mind, knowing exactly what I’m going to work on – be it a corner of the canvas or a feature of a face or whatever.  Other times, I have absolutely no clue.  Just step up and see what happens, letting it form and evolve kind of organically.  And, yep – it’s the latter approach that yields the best results.
