Painting. It’s a curious thing to do. Compulsive, consuming and demanding. And can be confronting. Each painting for me has an individual creative process I need to work through with it. Almost my conversation with the canvas. I’m working on a painting at the moment. I wasn’t happy with it. I put it aside, brought it out again and to get me going and change what had been there previously put some red on it,  a rather ‘in your face’ colour to challenge my re-consideration of the composition (image 1). I’ve worked on it for a few days now and think it could be finished (image 2), or not. I’ll have another look later. I’ve included some detail images of the surface to show the quality I am trying to achieve in the work. @ruthbluemts #paintingprocess #painting
