I love color and texture which is why most of my paintings have bold - bright color and lots of brush work or palette knife work has a lot of visible texture to it. I more often then not throw caution to the wind and favor the side of spontaneity.
I did a painting 12 x 18 and my DW (darling wife) thought the sky was too active/busy. I will admit that I went a bit overboard with my color and texture so she suggested that I eliminate some of the sky. Sooooooo I cut off the top 6 inches of sky ( painting was on linen paper ) - long story even longer - the "chopped down" painting looked much better and I was happy with the results of eliminating the top 6 inches. Welllllll - the story continues - I took the 6 inches of cut off sky and turned it into a painting which I call "The Progression of Autumn" It is 6 x 18
