I always love it when people post progressive photos showing the process of the artist as a piece takes shape. I’m not very good at doing that because I kind of get lost and because I use an intuitive process that doesn’t really lend itself to “steps”. My process is more rambling than linear.

However I do have a before and after (Just a tiny piece of the transformation) of my latest painting. It’ll give you a feel for the evolution of the piece. Check it out:

before (after about three or four layers of acrylic inks)

after ("consider the birds" 11x14 mixed media on Ampersand artist panel)

    I love seeing the evolution of paintings, especially intuitive ones because they could be ‘done’ at any stage really, so each step is interesting to see.

    I find it hard to remember to take pics as well. If I come to a natural rest I try to remember to take a picture, but if I plan to take pictures as I go along I find it interrupts my creative flow.
