I am often asked if I visualise the finished painting before starting to paint. The answer is yes… and no. I visualise the drawing but rarely the finished painting. I know in advance how the composition is going to be but only have a vague idea of the colours and the final look. Generally I advance accordant the my inspiration. The first colours are in acrylics because it dries quickly then I come back with oils for the details. For the colours, I decide while going along and it may change from time to time. The image above show four steps of a painting of an aloe plant and Rempart mountain.
