Each of the next few images are steps that create the flow of the viewer’s eye movement through texture placement. The changes to the canvas at this stage are not always dramatic but I paint a bit and walk away for a bit. For me, because of life schedules and commitments, those time bits can be hours or days but that can actually be a plus. When I have the opportunity to sit down again it is easier to see what needs doing.
In some cases I add elements and then come in and take them back out, or change the levels of the lines between parts of land and sky. It is a slow and serendipitous walk during this part of the painting. Slow is sometimes irritating and certainly tests patience as I can sometimes undo everything I did at a previous setting.
