New painting and a new Portfolio page

Laying the ground on a new canvas.
Landscape #1. Laying the ground on a new canvas.

Often I am asked, how I begin a painting, where I start, or what I do next?

I have a general idea of what I plan to paint when I begin but there is a great deal of decision making at every step as well. When I paint on site, people often enjoy watching me paint or will come back periodically to see how it is growing.

I started a painting this weekend – a landscape – and have decided to try and bring you along with me as I paint. This first image is just laying color down in a ground. There will be a new page under the portfolio tab and this page will show paintings at various stages from beginning to end. I hope you enjoy watching the process.
