This is how I start most of my paintings...
Before I start a painting I don't create a sketch on the canvas of what I'm going to paint I just start to paint but I'm beginning to rethink this.
Lately I've been sharing video clips of me painting via Instagram and Facebook.
What I'm learning is that I could show you more in those 15 second clips if I pre-sketch on the canvas. So I'm going to start sketching on the canvas so that I can just reach for the paint.
With this particular painting I created the tree and its branches, then I created the leaves and flowers with white and gray because I don't have the patience for an underpainting.
The birds above were the last touch.
And this is the result...
This is Over the Fence.
