I usually have a number of paintings "on the go" at any one time.

My method of working is such, that I rarely use sketches or drawings to plan a painting,  but work straight on to the board or canvas.

I usually "scrub in" a rough composition (almost an abstract) and then I correct, adjust and refine by overpainting.

I continue doing this until I am happy with the painting.

This method allows for "happy accidents" which I willingly include in the painting, these "accidents" often take the picture in a completely different direction to the one I had in mind, making the act of painting, a voyage of discovery.

The pictures included below, hopefully illustrate my working method.



The painting below was photographed as it progressed giving a sequence of photos showing it's development.
