Work in Progress Diptych.
Where am I in the process?
Recently I listened to a trailer for an interview by Nicholas Wilton talking to Mark Eanes.
Mark Eanes suggested that a good way of looking at the painting process is as a three step process, the beginning, the middle and the end. Each of these have three parts - a beginning a middle and an end, so nine phases in all.
I love this way of thinking about the process and it really gels with me and helps me assess where I am at. I has helped me to visualise what I have done in a meaningful way and how much more there is to do. For example, recently I felt that I wasn't getting past the beginning, but when I stood back and assessed the work I had done and what else I wanted to do, I felt I was further along the process and maybe more to the middle of the middle. Not foolproof of course, but a help.
For example in the work in progress above. I am at the beginning of the end. Realising that, cheered me up no end. 😊
Tell me how you assess where you are in the process.
