Today I worked more on the lizard concept from yesterday.
I re-drew it with an ultra-fine Sharpie, then I used my water color set over the top. Making small studies helps my mind to organize the shadows, light and composition before starting
a huge canvas. Although 70% of art is intuition, 30% is thought and planning. Whether its stretching a canvas, mixing paints or studying living subjects, nearly all art has a "thought" phase. This piece came to me late at night while listening to my mp3. A relaxed mind is a creative one for me. All my greatest ideas floated into my thoughts during rest and reflection.
