    I really enjoy seeing these quick studies ... in fact, Lisa Sarsfield and I have been talking about that recently. Will you do more with this or start another, more formal painting?

    Mick I might do a more formal version but I do not want to go over the initial impression if it is designed to be a complete piece. I also do layers in more formal pieces in which case I will do an initial layer but it is designed to serve as the foundation and has a different look. What do you do? Thanks. Bill

    Admittedly, I was not a very good painter when I did actually paint. My process usually includes a series of sketches, a working drawing and/or photographic reference. Then a loose background was laid in, a general blocking in of the subject with shapes, colors, variation of tone and finally finishing detail. It sounds good, the results weren't always.

    Mick - Thanks. I am still experimenting with different processes. Bill
