Painting in Multiples

One night as I was falling asleep, a painting idea came to me, with a specific process. I couldn’t get my paints out for another couple days, but I painted it in my head several times. And when I did get some studio time, I painted it on several media.

First, my art journal:

Then some cardboard:

Detail of square-in-squares:

And then a giant canvas I stretched myself, about 18×24. It’s a saggy first timer, and the scrap wood has some weird indents, but I’m learning.

This one is still in process, and you can see that the middle leaf-shaped thing is “supposed” to start with purple-on-purple circles before the square-on-squares. 

Not sure where any of this is “going”, or went, but an interesting exercise nonetheless!
