One of the things I really enjoyed about completing the art for Shining was I really only had a vague idea of how I was going to execute the paintings. They're all VERY mixed media except for two or three of them, and I was working unconventionally. (Watercolor over vine charcoal...you're not supposed to do this!)
I would compare it to writing a novel from page one with no written outline. You might think you know where you're going but.......This painting exemplifies what that process was like for me.
