How do I start a painting? What should I do first? What’s next? And so on.

In the last months, I have been writing about the painting principles, techniques and strategies that lead me to the decisions I make on my painting and when I am teaching my students. While I was going through my notes, looking for a theme for my first blog post I found something that is the beauty of working with oils.
It's a technique that I have applied to my work in the last few years more intensively. It's called "Lost and Found Edges".
This is the first part from the series of posts that will describe my thoughts and technical insights about Seeing, Mixing and Using Color...Enjoy!
Few years ago I went on a trip to Lake Tekapo in New Zealand with my friend and her little girl called Sophia and we got to see stunning scenery along the way.
