My drawing and painting life

M is for mistakes, revisited

That’s what this paintings is called. While doing the 100 square paintings, I was always painting 20×20 cm and suddenly, for some reason I broke that rule. I started idfferently, marked the 20x20cm line, but painted all over the page. πŸ™‚ So this is 27×27 cm. As I’m on a flower run for a bit, I thought it was fitting toΒ  post it.

Process notes. I was thinking the other day about what happened during the 100 square paintings and how to characterize the series,Β  I came up with the notion of ‘rough and ready painting’. During most of the series I painted in a kind of mixed approach – there was some planning involved in the choice support, the size and choice of color. But when I painted it was mostly quick painting. You might call that intuitive painting as well. But as my feeling usually was to GO GO GO, make quick marks, scratch and splatter – Γ‘nd make sure I finished at least one or two in one session – I’ve adopted the terms ‘raw’, and ‘rough and ready’ for the largest part of the series. I didn’t make all of the series in that way (by the end I started making more layered paintings adding other media), but I’m sure that about 70% of them were done in that way. I think I’ve found my style. Or one of my styles. πŸ™‚
