Moonlight was painted without any reference, on a night I had watched the moon come up from my deck. Frustrated with some physical issues that have prevented me from painting plein air this summer, I just went into the studio without any plan.
Why not just push paint around? No expectations, no agenda.
Not how I usually work at all, but it worked without my having to try too hard.
Magic. Do you believe in magic? Let go and see what happens.
