This week I have played a little bit with using one piece of imagery and completing two pieces based on the theme in the same sitting. The concept is to use a different approach with each piece and to see what happens. I will admit that I am working on automatic and just going with how the image comes off the pen or brush, rather than being a slave to realistic details.

The subject matter this evening was an image of Alberta autumn leaves. I tackled one painting in black and white and the other in color. You can see how the pieces are related, yet they have very different feels. The color image is more aggressive and busier, while the monochrome painting takes a simple and more peaceful route.

Playing with different styles in the same sitting  is an interesting approach, and I will be continuing working this way in the coming week.
