The compostion is about the cables, the tension in them.
I’m starting with the drawing for painting technique of using flat brushes. Applying with one , removing with the other. It’s easy and fluid and I can’t believe I haven’t been drawing painting, removing paint like that. Duh. The drawing is bang on. I also used the vertical pallet and mixed just the colors i needed. It's a challenge moving into painting from that kind of a start. I’m going to keep working with this technique.
