I had a great time using this technique to create the painting. It’s beautiful to watch the painting emerge. Below is a progression of how this painting came about . In this technique you allow the painting to emerge.

 

Follow Mahasweta:

I refer to my paintings as creations from stillness. I have found the best thing I can do as an artist is to get out of the way and let life paint what it wants to paint. I get inspiration about what each painting will be, and then, bit by bit, the general sense of it fills in, but that all comes from stillness, too.
