I've been taking an online workshop with artist Nicholas Wilton and we are working on a series of 12 x 12 panels. We are encouraged to "play" on the boards and make many passes before we settle in on a direction or bring it to completion. I thought I would show you one of the boards and the changes it has been going through. All the layers make for such an interesting history and add a rich texture to the finished piece. The image on the left is where is started out after many layers, the one in the middle a later version and the one on the right I've brought in some birds. I think it is getting close to being done but needs a few more tweaks. If you look closely, you can see some of the elements showing through from the earlier two versions.
