I use a combination of paintbrushes and palette knives when I paint. My approach is unconventional. I pull paint, drip paint, scrape paint to build significant amounts of texture and movement in my work.
I layer color. Each painting begins with mixing paint. These colors form a base from which tone and depth develop in the painting. I continue to add and build layers using complimentary and contrasting colors.
My paintings aren’t to be completed in one setting. They usually develop daily over days or weeks at a time. If working on a commission, this always takes priority to my daily practice.
