January - Negative Painting Exercise

It's been a long time since I've tried painting one of these where you randomly place colors on a sheet and then create the shapes by painting around them (negative painting).

This was worked in the Stillman & Birn Delta Journal and I remembered to take scans along the way to share how I personally approached it.

I have found that the creative part of me doesn't like to come out and play these days.  I have conditioned myself anymore to sketch and paint what I see in front of me.  I find it much easier than trying to come up with things from imagination.  And it definitely re-enforces my preference for sketching and illustrating versus things like this.  All in all I WAS pleased with the results :-)
