Playing with color
Everything begins with color. Often times I’ll start a new painting over one that didn’t quite work out. This here is. A study of Prussian blue, my favorite blue, and cadmium yellow with white. This video completes the background, video of the rest of the painting soon to come and more on nigelroper.com
Beginning with background
I believe that when painting it is always very important to start from the background and work forward from there. I use this process in order to keep my painting an open conversation between myself and the canvas for as long as possible. When the artist and the canvas are in agreement the painting is done.
