Kimberly Engel, Koi 2 - Original Painting
12 x 9 inches
Mixed media on paper
"My process involves adding and rubbing out thin layers of paint to build upon an initial gesture. During the process, I see imagery revealed. Sometimes I render scenes or objects, other times I paint them out. It depends on the overall impact of the composition.
My focus is to be light and free while in the midst of painting. I do this by leaving parts of the initial gesture visible. The overall process is somewhat like trying to solve a puzzle without having a picture on the box to guide me."
