The colours that go down first don't really matter as the composition will change with the addition of different layers and applications of paint and other media. Having said that this particular arrangement of colours I found pleasing though it has now disappeared under other layers.

I like to start off with no plan in mind but just to let the marks flow and only later on to decide if I want it to represent a mood, location or whatever. This picture started with black and white inks, graphite and then paint after making sketches at a rock outcrop in Grasmere.

A small part of a larger piece once again as an idea for a full size painting (whatever that means!). I like the deep dark corner, offset by the richness of the gold. Not sure about the turquoise. It's certainly too central at the moment.

Lots of pictures go through a stage when you feel like tearing them up, as with this one. But experience tells me that if I persevere and apply a few more layers even the worst painting can be transformed. There is no guarantee but nothing ventured nothing gained.
