This morning’s picture began as an attempt to figure out exactly how I sometimes manage to make surprisingly crisp textures on my mountainsides. I know what I just said sounds odd. I mean, I’m the guy doing all of this, so I should know what’s happening, right? The thing is, I don’t because I’m working out new method. I can set up its circumstances and make my moves, yet there are variables in there I haven’t caught on to; one attempt ends up a total mess and the very next works out spectacularly. What happened differently?

 

I don’t even know what to call what I’m doing – maybe flow printing or flow guidance? I certainly don’t understand it well enough to tell you about it yet. That’s one of the things I’ll work on this week. Meanwhile, here’s a wonderful little study of a Norwegian Mountain that has its head in the clouds and its feet in a fjord. Like I said, I don’t understand how some of this picture really happened, but it did and was such a gift. That gives me hope!
