PAINTING PROCESS
I try to find the one thing that is special about a subject.
Expand that into a good composition.
Then with brush and paint try to feature that special part, without it   dominating
Remembering the whole should be greater than the sum of parts.
All the while using liquid paint that has an infinite number of  values and colors and is applied with a bush containing a thousand wild hairs.
The bigger the brush the better.
