I began painting abstracts as a change from portraiture to loosen up my work and to learn to use my imagination. I have recently returned to portraiture and enjoy both genres now.
To loosen up my work, the surrealist Manifesto on ‘Mark Making’ has been very helpful. I found that by making marks combined with the use of color, my ideas could begin to take shape and the marks open up a genuine dialogue for me. This form of visual communication has led to some unique compositions.
Picasso said that his paintings were not always thought out beforehand but that they developed as he was creating them and even then they kept on developing even after he had finished with them, in the imagination of the viewer. I agree whole heartedly with his sentiment.
