Stylistic progression

Sky Pads 13, for comparison

Sky Pads 14, looking like it’s done. I’m pleased that it seems to make a logical progression from #13, both in color choice and style.

I was aiming for a rendition similar to 14, but with the color intensity a bit more subdued and the technique a little subtler. I didn’t pour or splash any paint on 14 after the initial wash on the blank canvas. Everything was done with brushes after that, although with more of a scrubbing technique than a traditional painterly effort.

Just as an unrelated aside, I was thinking that with this painting style I am probably well protected against forgers (as if anybody would want to 😋). Everything is so beautifully random!
