How We Communicated: words, sound effects and body language
Ooohh look at the drips, this is fun, "I love drips", "I love the gestural strokes", it looks like a dirty sheet,"it's too blue", Im not sure about this, "this area is not working for me", we need to do something, we need more color, lets come back to this piece, "that looks like a disease - oh no, its back", this is really hard, what is working for you?, its too busy - it lacks areas where the eyes can rest, sfumato, sfumato, sfumato
lets add this here and bring it through in this area,...sound and body gestures, silence, where do you want to start?, ready to trade?, are we ready to bring in a third blue?, its too mid-range, its too decorative, its just too pretty, its driving me crazy, we need to change something, its not working, what should we do with this part?, more grids, it getting too busy, we need to push that back! Ultramarine blue becomes our savior. I think we are close to done, lets take it to the Mill.
