This concept for this series of paintings is a passage of white and in each one I focus all of the energy and information along the edge of the white shapes. It is important to remember the point and that is to make the viewer look where you want them to look and to entertain them in other areas.
When starting a painting that is fairly abstract and you are trying to express a feeling, you must design the painting and design the white shape. I do it by using a sketch book and 6B pencil taking care to really make the shape work and have movement before committing to the painting process. It does let the you be freer and more expressive with your painting.
