I meant to include these photos in my last post on edges. Carolyn Anderson talked about edges in her interview on AMO blog radio. She mentioned something that I had to try which was to paint outside of the edge or inside of the edge not up to the edge. Of course, I had to try out this approach. If you google to her website you will see Carolyn's lovely work.
She suggested doing the drawing like a charcoal drawing, but using a wash which I thought was a good way of looking at the start, using shapes, rather than lines.
When I apply something new, I go back to basic shapes.
There is some heavy paint done with a palette knife.
