Monday Motivator: Improvisation vs Domination in a Painting

Monday Motivator quote

“…the unpredictability of wet in wet effects teaches [you] to improvise with the paint behavior rather than try to dominate it.

“…all wet in wet effects result from an imbalance of wetness between paper, brush and fresh paint

“…the main source of control is turning water against itself, using moisture to guide and control moisture in much the way that forestry workers use fire to control and extinguish a forest fire. This is the wet in wet balancing act.”
