After my recent post about
using a grid when painting larger,
many artists shared my concern that doing a grid
can stifle spontaneity and an intuitive approach.
I'm trying to avoid letting that happen.
Corner of N. Margin
16 x 20
(sorry about the glare)
Once I got the composition for this laid in, in the proper proportions,
I had a blast applying all those dark values
and playing with the paint application.
Knowing the drawing is correct is liberating!
I'm finding doing a grid an invaluable tool
with these larger architectural pieces.
Maybe not so much with landscapes and small still lives.
