Like writing, my painting starts with an idea that I put down on paper. In art, I use Caran D’Ache watercolor pencils and lightly draw the shapes on the canvas. A similar process happens when I start on a story. In Lord of Darkness I wondered about the thinking power of an animal. How much do they understand when we talk to them? This question was the start of Lord of Darkness.
I’ve never had a good title for this painting. I think I called it Autumn Pathway. That’s pretty ho-hum. Can you think of a more interesting title? If you have an idea, please make comments on this post.
