Scrapping the Initial Plan

The initial vision in starting this piece, doesn’t add up to the completed painting. I occasionally feel so committed to an idea, that I forget to just let the full on creative process happen. If I do this – allow the concept to evolve, I can end up with ‘happy accidents’. The plan for Urban Experience started with the buildings reaching high into the sky – starting at the top corners of the canvas. But as I was happily painting away, the shadowy building in the background just kind of appeared. I didn’t even take the time to consider a new plan, I decided to just follow what the paint wanted to do and my instincts and go with it.
